They’re here. The all-new BMW’s 
Hottest, sportiest BMW’s ever. 
500, GOO and 750 cc’s! 




' This is the most exciting motor- 
cycle news in years. These BMW’s 
are totally new, in everything but 
BMW craftsmanship and our 
famed horizontally-opposed cyl- 
inder layout. 

For one thing, these new ones 
are all sport. All go. Lighter and 
faster. With more muscle and 
more speed. With greater acceler- 
ation and greater agility. With 
displacement all the way up to 
750cc's. 

In fact, they're so full of tech- 



nical advances they set a new 
standard for the motorcycle 
world. And with it all, there’s 
the quality of design and con- 
struction that only BMW could 
give you. 

Over the past 45 years, we've 
come up with more motorcycle 
firsts than anybody else. Which is 
why it's no surprise that our 
white-and-blue insignia again 
marks the machine that's way out 
front. 

So if you're ready for a real 



man ? $ motorcycle, check out the 
new BMW's. One look and you 'll 
know what we mean when we 
say, here comes the new king of 
the road.

LETTERS 

TO THE EDITOR 

Tributes to Willy Ley 

Regarding your editorial. Send Willy 
Ley’s Ashes to r/ie Moon! (page 10, Sept. 
PM), I believe every effort should be 
made to honor this man in that way. 
Deerfield, N.H. E. D. Hehsey sh„ 

I was deeply saddened upon opening the 
September issue to discover that Willy 
Ley has missed man’s conquest of the 
moon. 

I grew up into America’s space age on a 
solid footing provided by his classic. Rock- 
ets, Missiles and Space Travel. 

I agree with PM that he deserves a final 
tribute from this nation, to which he has 
contributed his foresight and vision. Willy 
Ley’s final resting place should be on the 
moon — which he prodded this country to 
conquer. 

Detroit, Mich. David Gariepy 

PM Owners Reports get an 'A' 

As both an academic and practicing sta- 
tistician, I have long frowned upon the 
evaluation of various consumer goods by 
magazine staffs or groups organized for 
such purposes. The difficulty is not the 
objectivity nor the thoroughness of the in- 
vestigators: rather, the problem lies in the 
procedure of drawing conclusions about 
all units of a model or brand from the 
study of a single unit. In view of the nat- 
ural variability of manufacturing pro- 
cesses, without a large enough sample and 
proper statistical procedures, it is impos- 
sible to infer anything meaningful about 
the entire group. 

A refreshing contrast to this pattern are 
your evaluations of automobile models on 
the basis of a million or so owner-miles. 
The mileage per gallon and defect- 
percentage data based upon your results, 
although somewhat deficient for several 
statistical reasons, are nevertheless suffi- 
ciently meaningful to provide real guid- 
ance for the prospective automobile pur- 
chaser. Please continue this form of eval- 
uation — 'your data on gas mileage and auto 
defects are the best available.

S-10 (Hou> to Cfltnp Anywhere) . To clar- 
ify what & apparently a misconception 1 
thought it best that I write you. — - 

Your article stated that Oregon re- 
quired §100,000/ $300,000 minimum liability 
insurance on all travel trailers. To the 
contrary, Oregon has no minimum liabil- 
ity requirement on worm a f travel trailers. 
If a trailer exceeds 10 feet in width or 55 
feet in length it must be granted a permit 
by the Permit Section of the Highway 
Div, of the Department of Transportation, 
. Before such a permit can be issued to a 
, vehicle that is obviously oversize, the 
owner must provide liability insurance of 
the limits you indicated.

Crazy and mixed up 

Your statement in Our Crazy. Mixed- 
Up Speed Louis (page 81. Sept. PM) that 
“You’re innocent until proven guilty" is 
somewhat a myth, for many small-town 
judges and police receive a percentage of 
fines — a sad situation in this day and age. 

Furthermore, your account of a Califor- 
nia traffic officer who admits that he picks 
on teen-agers clearly demonstrates one of 
the reasons for general unrest in this 
country. This man not only does great dis- 
service to the community but also pro- 
motes an “outsmart the cop" attitude. He 
does great harm in citizen -police relations. 

The hate and fear of police can only 
bring disaster to this nation. 

Evanston, III. Igor de Lissovoy 

Regarding the Speed Quiz, I gave an 
answer of 45 mph to the question: “The 
speed limit as you enter most towns is . . 

Most towns, as you enter, post a 50-mph 
speed limit to allow you to gradually slow 
down, A little further, this drops to 40, 
then to 30 (or 25, as the case may be) . 
Dallas, Tex. E, P, Aldredge 

I agree that we have crazy, mixed-up 
speed laws, but few people, including the 
authorities who enforce them, realize how 
many there are that are actually so crazy 
that it is impossible for anyone to comply 
with them. It can be proven in any labora- 
tory, just court or congressional investiga- 
tion that it is impossible for anyone to 
comply with these laws, therefore it not 
only is prima facie evidence that the laws 
are crazy and insane but are also uncon- 
stitutional, immoral and contrary to al- 
most every physical and just legal law.

DETROIT 

US1ENIHG POST 

BY BILL KILPATRICK 

DON'T BET Ford won’t have a new president some time in the coming ycaT. In fact, 
by the time this appears board chairman Henry Ford II may already have named a new 
man. This despite his insistence at the time Semon E. “Bunkie" Knudsen was fired that 
the company would be run by himself, executive vice-president Lee A. lacocca and a 
group of divisional executives, each of whom has been dubbed ‘‘president,” Ford per- 
sonally is known to feel the company needs a strong hand at the helm (Knudsen was 
too strong, ruffled too many executive feathers, according to insiders), meaning Ford 
isn't apt to leave the day-to-day business of running the company to a “committee" 
of often far-flung, diversified executives. If and when there's a new man, the hunch 
here is it'll be a face familiar in the industry, 

CHRYSLER'S NEW MINI -CAR, due to bow in the late spring of ’71, won’t be too new 
and won't be too mini. The car, code-named the ' 25," will be built on a 91- in. wheelbase 
and be 166 in. long overall, meaning a good bit of overhang, probably up front. (By com- 
parison, VW's "Beetle" has a 94.5-in. ivheelbase, is 158.6 in. long overall.) Where the 
"25" will shine, however, is in overall width— a proposed 71 in,, 10 more than the 
"Beetle,” and three to six inches wider than similar mini-cars due from Detroit. One 
source told PM the new car would look like a "stunted, starved Valiant” somewhat high 
in the back end, and possibly featuring a cargo door a la the Simca 1204 and the Renault 
16. The car, in different versions, will appear under both the Dodge and Plymouth

GROWING CONCERN is being voiced around town these days about the seemingly 
unavoidable conflict between safety interests and booming car and truck production. 
One group sees little but gloom, the other roses. Dr. Ross A, McFarland, of Harvard 
University's School of Public Health, a widely recognized authority on matters of public 
health and safety, is on record as seeing the automobile contributing in part to “new 
threats to the well-being of large sections of the population," Dr. McFarland said there 
was little if any reason to doubt that the regular increases in the number of drivers 
killed on the world's roadways wouldn’t continue as more and more drivers and vehicles 
hit the streets. On the other hand, John B. Naughton, general manager of the Ford 
Div, of Ford, recently forecast that annual new- car sales of 14 million “will be nothing 
extraordinary" within ten years. Naughton said he also could see truck sales expanding 
by as much as 25 percent over their present level of two million annually. Dr. McFar- 
land, meet Mr, Naughton. 

RENAULT has lowered prices $50 per car in the United States due to the recent devalu- 
ation of the French franc. At the same time the company announced the price cut it also 
wiped out the P.O.E. price differential between east and west coasts. Now the Renault 
10 sedan and the Renault 16 sedan- wagon will be $1725 and $2395 respectively. As of 
this writing, other French imports — Citroen, Peugeot, Simca — plan to hold the line on 
prices despite the franc's devaluation. In view of Detroit's recent boosts, the cut could 
spur import sales even further, 

IF YOU'RE A WOMAN over 45 and you're a good driver, chances are you're a very 
good driver. But if you’re bad, you’re terrible. However, regardless of your age and 
whether or not you're good or bad as a driver, you tend to have a better overall driving 
record than a man and you also have better driving habits. This bit of fuel for the normal 
fires of domesticity is reported by Pirelli Tire Corp., which each spring at the New York 
Auto Show administers a driver personality test to thousands of show visitors. This year,

bad, Lee iTov can hardly sit 
down next day. That Autolite 



battery takes all that 
vibration right nicely, 
plates in my Autolite have 
never come loose.” 

Autolite racing batteries have a 
patented Vibration Guarded design. 
Elates are mechanically bonded, top 
and bottom. And press-fitted to stay 
put, despite 20< 1 mph vibration. 

“Racing’s 
tough on bat- 
teries. You’re 
tougher. You 
cold-start a lot. 
That drains 

fluid and 

L VAf 



power. And then you don’t let 
the gas station fellow take 





time to refill your battery.” 

Thafs okay with Autolite. Its 
Sta-Ful reservoir has up to 3 times 
more water above the plates. And, in 
normal use, needs filling only about 
three times a year. 

“We change batteries like 
socks. You’d stick with yours 
for 40,000 miles— and never 
think about the dust and salt 
and stuff piling up on the 
battery, and making a nice 
little path for electric leaks.” 
with Autolite, you can forget 
electric leakage. The one-piece cover 
construction virtually eliminates self- 
discharging across the battery top. 

Next time get an Autolite battery. 
It passes the toughest test in racing, 
the toughest test there is. Your 
of driving.

DETROIT LISTENING POST 

(Continued from page 10) 

over 7000 men and women drivers were 
tested. Purpose of the tests, according to 
Pirelli and industrial clinical psychologist 
Dr. Harry J. Woehr, is to show that driv- 
ing records tend to match overall personal- 
ity traits, 

“We feel the results of our tests will 
prove useful in formulating driver educa- 
tion programs,” Dr, Woehr says. “For ex- 
ample, contrary to popular opinion, alert- 
ness is not the most important factor in 
maintaining a safe driving record. On the 
basis of test information, we can only con- 
clude that alert drivers do not necessarily 
have the best driving record with regard 
to violations. In fact, their records were no 
better than those who scored poorly on 
alertness. Obviously, alertness is a desir- 
able driving trait. However, test findings 
indicate that traffic violations are related 
more significantly to attitude, mood and 
personal outlook than to the alertness as- 
pect." 

Pirelli’s survey also brought out dis- 
quieting news for the fathers of teenage 
daughters — women between the ages of 
16-25 are apparently the most conscien- 
tious drivers on the road, this “safest 
group” recording fewer violations than any 
other age or sex grouping, 

EMISSION CONTROL SYSTEMS now 

being utilized on cars sold in the United 
States came in for kind words recently 
from a group that ought to know whereof 
it speaks — the Committee on Chemistry 
and Public Affairs of the American Chem- 
ical Society. The committee, in a special 
report to Congress, said present systems 
in cars have resulted in “significant steps 
in the control of automobile pollution." 

The report pointed out, however, that 
periodic inspection and maintenance of the 
systems are required to insure their effec- 
tive performance, adding that available 
procedures and equipment “are not well 
suited for this task.” The committee urged 
prompt development of effective proce- 
dures and equipment by both government 
and industry. It also said even stricter fed- 
eral antipollution standards would be 
needed in the near future. 

A NEW UTILITY VEHICLE designed to 
compete in the fast-growing four-wheel- 
drive market may be in dealer showrooms 
by the time you read this. General Motors' 
Truck and Coach Div, is reported to have 
such a unit in the wings, ready to go. If and 
when it appears, it’ll carry the GMC name- 
plate, be aimed squarely at Ford’s Bronco, 
even the GM-produced Chevy Blazer. ★ * *

Payoff from Apo llo 11 l aser experiment: a determination that the moon is 131,2 feel farther 
from Earth than previously liiought. The measurement was made by sending a laser beam 
through the 107-inch telescope at the University of I’exas* McDonald Observatory, bouncing 
it off the reflector placed at Tranquillity Base by astronaut Neil Armstrong, and clocking how 
long it took for the light rays to make the round trip between Earth and moon. Because of 
the moon*s elliptical orbit, the diglance between the two bodies varies; the mean distance 
has been estimated at 23R.B57 miles* a calculation that will no doubt now be corrected. The 
distance between the McDonald Observatory and Tranquillity Base was measured to be 
232,271.331 mi let — a measurement considered to he the most accurate to date. 

Sonar an d a big pipelin e are com bined in an unusual plan for corralling big quantities of 
fish off Australia's northwest coast* Masses of fish that move into Admiralty Gulf at high 
tide would be “directed^ into nets hy means of sonar* The nets then would he dragged to the

Attacks by bloodsucking vampire bats pose a serious problem in almost a score of Latjn- 
American countries. Most frequent victims are cattle, which become infected with paralytic 
rabies* a disease carried by the bats that results in coma and death. Researchers in Mexico 
are carrying out a broad study into bat behavior, the mechanisms by which the rabies is 
spread, and how best to protect against the disease. 

Computers report to computers when many companies send in quarterly statements of 
workers" earnings to the Social Security Administration* Computers in company offices re- 
cord earnings on magnetic lapes, which are sent to Social Security offices where other com- 
puters read the reels and transcribe data. The system is more efficient than that involving 
human bookkeepers* according to Social Security officials resulting in savings for both 
employers and the government. The number of companies using the system has grown from 
106, four years ago, to 635 today, 

A sudden loss of physical strength occurs in Japanese men at age 42 and women at 39, ac- 
cording lo a report in Medical World JVmfs. The condition, uncovered in a survey of 36*000 
men and women by the Japanese Ministry of Education* is attributed to the fact that Jap- 
anese adults do not participate much in sports* In Western countries loss of strength is 
gradual for boih sexes. 

Electronical ty controlled artificial bands can now be allached immediately after surgery by 
means of a procedure developed at Northwestern University Medical School, A plaster cast 
is used during the first few weeks following the operation. It acts as a rigid, post-surgical 
dressing, protecting the wound from infection* and contains metal fob electrodes that pick 
up tiny electric signals from the skin. These signals are amplified and processed to operate 
the hand l prosthesis}. When the wound has healed, the cast is removed and ihe final 
prosthesis is filled* Because the pal tent uses muscles in his stump from the start* circulation 
is improved, resulting in faster healing. 

The importation of the walking catfish may be banned in the near future by the U*S» govern- 
ment. Some of the creatures escaped from a tropical fish dealer^ pond in Florida about five 
years ago, and since then have spread lo the point where they threaten the survival of other 
fish in that state. A native of Southeast Asia, the catfish has accessory breathing organs that 
allow it to operate on land as well as its natural habitat. When ponds are poisoned, the 
catfish take off, creeping a quarter-mile or so in search of more salubrious water. 1 ie fish 
can cover about five feet a minute if the ground is wet. If the fish is not: stopped in its tracks, 
warn wildlife officials, it may in time spread all over the Southeast. * * *

Q + f hear Mercedes-Benz hos a new sports cor 
ft plans to ran of te Mans, tike the Ford GTi. Do 
you know any thing about if?— Bi/f Ni \x on , Sprin9- 
Field, HI. 

A. You probably hove heard about the new 
Mercedes C*1 11, which was featured in last 
month's issue (Mercedes Places Triple Rotor 
Amidships in New Limited-Production Sports 
Car, page 72, Oct. PM). It has captured the 
interest of the entire motoring world, espe- 
cially those of us in racing, It is styled some- 
what similarly to the Le Mans-winning Ford 
GT-40, but the most interesting aspect is its 
Wank el rotary piston engine. Experts have 

22 



long speculated that the rotary may be the 
engine that will replace the reciprocating 
piston engine. The powerplant in the C-111 
reportedly produces 330 hp from 220 inches 
of displacement and everyone will be watch- 
ing to see what Mercedes-Benz does with it., 
although it insists it has no plans to race 
again, 

Qi Who won that race between Indianapolis 
drivers and European drivers at Monza, ltoly f m 
1958?— Cliff Haffenden, Scarsdole, N.Y. 

A. It was run in heats, but the overall winner 
was Jim Rathmann in the John Zink Leader 
Card Special. V was tn Europe at the time, 
just beginning my racing over there, and was 
fortunate enough to watch the race. It was 
very interesting and thrilling, but the cars 
took a terrific beating on the high-banked 
old track and I doubt the race wilt ever be 
repeated. 

Q. What kmd of engine h used in the McLorens 
which have won so many of the Con- Am races? 
Is it really a "dock" Chevrolet?— Robert Stewart, 
Dallas. 

A, It is probably a great deal more ‘'stock 1 ' 
than you might think. It's an aluminum alloy 
version of the 427 engine thot appears in 
many Chevrolet cars. In fact, the 427 alloy 
engine you might order for Can-Am racing 
could be installed in its basic form in either 
a passenger car, or, with additional racing 
"musts'* like fuel injection, dry sump, special 
headers, pumps, bellhousing, and so on, in 
a competitive Can-Am car.

Ask a Chevrolet, Ford 
to give you this much 




This may be the first time any- 
body in our business seriously 
asked you to check out the com- 
petition. 

But then, this may be the first 
time anybody in our business lias 
had this much better deal than the 
competition. 

Our Rebel Wagon has the lowest 
list price of any wagon made in 
America. 

It also has more room inside than 
any other wagon in the intermedi- 
ate class. (More room, for example, 



than Plymouth’s Belvedere, which 
lists for $219 more.) 

And you don’t have to take our 
word for it. 

We’re displaying specially- 
marked Rebel Wagons so that you 
can see just what you get from us. 

And, we’re furnishingd larts and 
tape measures so that you can go 
see just what you get from any- 
body else. 

At the risk of being unfair, here’s 
what you get in cargo space, which 
is what most people buy a wagon

for in the first place. 

According to Automobile Man- 
ufacturer's Association figures, the 
Rebel gives you 91.1 cubic feet of 
above- the- floor cargo space. Fair- 
lane gives you 87.0; Belvedere, 84.9 
and Chevelle, 84.0. 

So the Rebel is way ahead there. 
Now, about shoulder room, hip- 
room, legroom and headroom. 

Against Fairlane and Chevelle, 
the Rebel wins in 7 out of 8 AMA 
interior measurements, 15 out of 8 
against Belvedere), and it wins in 



all the important places. Which 
leads us to think that you can’t find 
more room for your money than 
you get in a Rebel Wagon. 

If we thought you could, we 
wouldn’t be handing out charts 
and tape measures.

classes to attend. If you can tie a knot and 
drive a tack, you can learn this business, 
quickly, easily. You start learning the 
basics right away through the proven MUI 
Home Training Plan, And before you're 
barely into it, you can start doing the 
Simple upholstering jobs that are all around 
you waiting to be done. Chairs, 
cushions, seats, footstools. 

Even before MUI students 
finish their training, people 
start bringing upholstery jobs 
to then. and_ remember— the 
world is full of furniture that 
needs fixing and re-upholstering 
and more is wearing out 
all the time!

I've berti concerned with salesmanship all mv working hfe* 
and I've seen one fact demon straied over and over ugum: 
fq make myirfv, y&to've (tot to htn*e pr&Uirtj llruf SELL- 
American I nifnx ha* a whole line of ^uch products. 1 f 
you’re of average intelligence and nor as ran! of a little hard 
work, there’s no reason why you can't earn S 1.000 nr more 
per week selling onr product*. 

Wide-awake men and women all across [hr nation report 
the biggest, easiest profile of I heir lives with our line. A 
Florida housewife, who had never before sold a thing, spent 
M maybe 5 minute* in her local newspaper office and nailed 
down a sale— including $21 5 commission for herself,

The "secret" of Successes like these; Prvdmtj that wi L 
For example, consider (’! SPVFAX, our patenter] replace- 
ment for old-fashioned carljuii paper. iarlion paper rrp re- 
sents a 5203,000,000 market. COP Y FAX is rapidly taking 
over that market, befauac COPY PAX in every way is 
riemun.sl rably Superior to carlimt paper. 

Carbon paprr is a flimsy grade of tissue paper coated 
with a mixture of carbon particle" and grease. COPY FAX 
is tough, thin DtiPufit Mylar^W* with a microscopic "honey- 
cumh" surface impregnated with .i liquid ink “similar to 
(ha i used by primers, 

COPY FAX doe* away forever with all the annoying 
features of carbon paper. OOF V FAX won't curb crease, 
or fold. Try to itar a ^htrt uf COPYFAX, You ran't; 
COPYFAX actually has one^thryd the at rue! lira] 'UrengEh of 
steel. Crumple a sheet of COPY FAX into a hall and smooth 
it out again — itV still perfect, A rnecc of carbon paper is 
ready for the waste basket after about 5 uses, f OP\ FAX 
is Still giving sharp, cri^ji, smearprOOf copies after 100 , * . 
150 , . , rtru .hlfl jijfj, In terms nf COPY FAX out- 
SKTforms carhpfi paper h\ a I least 500%, 

Next, consider the revolutionary American Unifnx Typing 
Ribbons — made of the same DitPoui Mylar and special sol" 
vent ink found in COPYFAX. This miracle ribbon converts 
tiny bpewritfe old or itew, manna! nr electric, -it an* lard or 
portable — into a prestige "Executive" machine that produces 
a sharp* crisp smearproof image almost impossible (c dis- 
tinguish from fine printing. Until tbr advent af this ribbon* 
such result* were possible only with a special typewriter 
costing several hundred dollar?? and using a so-called "one- 
shoi’" ribbon. An American Vnifax Typing Ribbon installs 
instantly, without special spools or adapters. And tacaust 
the special solvent tnk never touches the keys, the messy* 
time -consuming job of cleaning the typewriter is gone 
forever!! 

"Corrections so neat that only your typewriter knows you 
made a mistake?" Kay those 12 words to any typist, any 
*tcne T any secretary, and you'll have made another ecnveri 
to new American Unifax Correction Paper with miracle 




Dept. F-119. 95 Madison Av*. , New York, N,Y. 1001 A 



M-E-K! Ordinary correction paper employ# a powdered -chalk 
coating, and often require* several strikes to blank nut the 
error, several more to insert the correct inn. American Unifax 
Correction Paper employs a snow-white h total-reba^ solvent 
ink- one strike and the trrrur disappears, unc mure and the 
correction apjiears . , , every tame. No eraser crumbs, no 
chalk dust, no paint spatter*. Every typist lows it— -anil sn 
docs her bot* T because corrections made with this a mating 
paper arc virtually undetectable,

fhere are in NASCAR. Although I like to watch 
Trans-Am "Pony Cots" rood-rating, it*s hard for 
me to swallow that. What do you say?— At Wefts, 
Sacramento, Calif * 

A, I say you should open wider, If you con- 
sider the parent corporations,. you really have 
only ford and Chrysler interested m NASCAR. 
In Trans- Am it isn't hard to see that Ford, 
General Motors (Chevy Camara, for example) 
and American Motors are already very inter- 
ested, with rumors of Chrysler joining th# 
battle in 1970. 

Q. Has Jackie Steward who / read clinched 
this year's Grand Frix World Driving Champion* 
ship by winning at Monza, ever been World 
Champion before?— Alvin Junor , Tvstin, Calif. 

A. Though Jackie has long been held In very 
high esteem all over the world, this is his 
first World Championship. 1 salute him and 
his fi ne team for a job well done. 

Q, Front what I have read it sounds like you pre- 
fer smaller road cars for your persona/ trans- 
portation. Do you think the trend to "big boots*' 
ot Detroit will ever end?— J. L McDuffy, Brooklyn, 

A. I really don't know what the mafor many* 
facturers have in mind for the next few years, 
but as I read the signs, I believe we may see 
a more concentrated volume in smaller-sized 
vehicles than has recently been the case. I 
would guess one of the most popular cars in 
the country right now is the "Pony" car# or 
the Cougar-Mustang-Camaro-Barracudp-Fire- 
bird type. Also, I have seen reports from ex- 
perts in the industry which indicate that the 
country will soon be facing a serious problem 
in physically handling the millions of "big 
boats'* already produced, and that size must 
come down if only for this reason, 

Q* / am 16, live in Kentucky, and om about to 
receive my driving license. But they are talking 
□bout raising the age limit to 18. What do you 
tbiolf about the minimum age for driving s and 
when did you start?— Billy Walton, TaJ mouth, Ky , 

A. I received my license when I was 16, al- 
though I started driving sooner than that. In 
fact, I did to much driving while seated to the 
right of the driver that for awhile it felt awk*

ward when I got info the reel driver'* position. 
I think a beginner's age of 16 is fine. It really 
depends upon the individual's judgment and 
training much mare than how old he is. 

Q. How do you "pop o wheetie "?— Mike Stan- 
ford, Bridgewater, NJ r 

A. On a motorcycle, you just turn if on in low 
gear at the same time that you pull back and 
up on the handle bar$ + In a car you need a 
certain amount of power and traction, de- 
pending upon the weight distribution of the 
car. The farther forward and the lower the 
center of gravity,, the more power and traction 
you need. The dutch l % often used if you don't 
have enough power. 



Q. How does the Eagle compare in speed fo a 
Group 7 or Formula ? cor?— Jim Martin, Vandatia, 
Ohio. 



A. At the moment, I would say our Indy Eagle 
is on a par with a Group 7 car when equipped 
with F-l -style wings, and faster than an F-l 
car. Championship rules do not allow wings 
as such, however (though we have tested 
with them), so it ends up being equal! to an 
F-1 car and a bit slower than a Group 7 car. 

Q. For drag racing, how wide should the tires be 
on a Dodge Charger or MuJtong?— Brad Arnold, 
Formersburg, Ind, 

A. The best way to find this out is to go out 
to a good drag strip and check the cars in 
your class that are running best. Then meas- 
ure their tires. 

Q* My girf friend soy s someone fold her you were 
once on opera singer. Why don't they get you to 
sing the national anthem before the Indy 500?— 
Jerry Davis, Chicago, Jh. 

A. Someone obviously has me confused with

Metropolitan Opera. As a singer 1 might make

cleaning services. 

For example, let’s say you start with the 

VON SCHRADER WALL DETERGER 

{LOWEST PRICE OF ALL THREE} 

1 • Associate G. H. Jones made $1200.00 on one job. Associate 
R. G. Fullmer says contracts this year will gross about 
$18,000.00. And no wonder.. .this machine washes walls 6 
times faster than by hand... with no mesa... no drop cloths 
needed, Washing is so easy ...no tiresome scrubbing... special 
glider wipes walls clean with little effort. You can start part- 
time and by working week-ends add hundreds of dollars to 
your income while still employed. 

Then you can double your profit by adding the

BY WADE MITCHELL 



INSTALL A DIRECT-READING LP-GAS GAUGE IN YOUR RIG — and stop worry- 
ing about the fuel supply, A gauge such as the Visi -Valve provides users with a con- 
tinual check on LP-gas tank levels. That way, careful campers will not run out of gas 
in the middle of a meal far from the nearest LP-gas supply station. 

LOW INTEREST RATES ON TRAVEL TRAILERS, Despite much talk of tight money 
and a credit crunch, Airstream Trailers report that they are still selling their vehicles 
with low interest rates. Other companies are doing the same, and it's safe to say that 
a good credit risk can still get rates fully one-fourth to one-third cheaper than rates 
charged on new cars or new boats. Buyers should be aware of the leverage they can 
exert. Fight for better rates! They're available, 

HAVING PROBLEMS WITH BAD TASTING WATER? It’s a common complaint in 
well-used recreational vehicles. Water tanks collect dust, salt and unpleasant flavor 
from gas ^station hoses. You can solve this problem with a new filler hose advertised as 
being '‘tasteless, 1 Write H&H Engineering Co. T Box 242, Battle Creek, Mich. 49016. 

DOME-TYPE ANTENNA FOR TELEVISION RECEPTION. Vorta Systems, Inc. (220 
S. Main St., Wauconda, 111, 60084) is selling the first real departure from the standard 
tree- type television mast. This new dome- type antenna utilizes reflectors and drivers, 
but the entire signal system is anchored in polyurethane foam inside a protective fiber- 
glass dome S v 2 inches high by 18 1* inches in diameter. A coaxial cable, permanently 
attached to dome, is shielded against interference. Price is $29,95. 

MONITORING DEVICES INFORM DRIVER OF REAR LIGHT CONDITIONS. Light- 

transmitting Lucite wires can be bent around curves, and they carry light that acts 
as a monitoring beacon. Now the driver towing a trailer can see whether his taillights 
and turn-signal lamps are working just by glancing at the tiny jewel-like monitors 
placed on the front of his trailer. A quick glance in the mirror show's condition of rear 
panel lights. If they go out, Lucite wires cease carrying the light, signaling malfunction. 

SKYLIGHTS ARE COMING. Barth Trailers has announced the availability of trans- 
lucent skylights for its coaches; they’re constructed of plexiglass in a double-dome 
design to seal out heat, w'ater and cold. The 43- inch square domes are tinted blue to 
filter the glare, while interiors are white for maximum enjoyment of the extra light. 
Skylights eliminate dark pockets and make any coach more cheerful. 

DID YOU KNOW that there were an estimated 709,900 snowmobiles in private pos- 
session at the start of the 1969 season? By the end of 1970, experts predict an increase 
of another 350,000 track-type snow machines capable of penetrating wilderness areas. 
That means a possible one million snowmobiles in operation by next year at this time! 
Roughly 75 percent of all snowmobiles are presently concentrated in just five states: 
Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New York and Wisconsin. 

DON’T HOLD YOUR BREATH. An all-industry switch to fiberglass coach construc- 
tion is at least five years away, according to reliable estimates. Despite the obvious 
and unassailable advantages of nonporous, seamless fiberglass, manufacturers will face 
major problems during coming change-over: lack of skilled workers familiar with 
plastics: higher cost of resins and glass cloth; heavier weight of fiberglass versus 
aluminum: problems with repair of molded panels; and difficulty of joining dissimilar 
materials to the plastic- reinforced coach bodies. * * *

Everybody’s Happy But Esquire 

Everybody came out of Apollo 1 1 smelling like a rose. Everybody, that is, but 
Esqtare. The self-styled Magazine for Men” was worried sick lest our astronauts 
embarrass us all by failing to say something clever w hen they reached the moon. 

On the eve of man's greatest adventure, Esquire, in a fit of adolescent nit- 
picking, devoted its July cover and six pages to "prove' that the astronauts were 
a bunch of Mortimer Snerds. 

To help Neil Armstrong come up with something to rank with " Dr. Living- 
stone, 1 presume?" Esquire asked more than sixty eminent Americans what they 
would say if the) were first to set foot on the moon. The panel included such 
heroic types as Tiny Tim, Dr. Timothy Leary, Sal Mineo and the president of 
the American Sunbathing Assn. 

William H. Honan, who detailed Esquire’s apprehensions, kept calling Arm- 
strong, a civilian, Commander Armstrong." He demonstrated a line grasp of 
history by describing what happened after Magellan had circumnavigated the 
globe" (lie never made it) and what Vasco da Gama said when he sighted the 
New World (he never did) and displayed his understanding of space tech- 
nology by recalling "when Captain Schirra tlirottlcd up the ApolJo Spacecraft's 
great rocket motor . . . commanding enough power to ding himself to the moon 
and back" (Schirra never rode the Saturn 5 moon rocket; his Apollo 7 flight 
used the smaller Saturn 1-B). 

Earlier, when Schirra was communicating with Gordon Cooper from the 
ground, Esquire was mortified to hear him tell Cooper he was right smack dab 
in the middle of the plot" It makes you wonder if CBS auditioned Schirra before 
it signed him to back up Walter Cron kite, 

When Cooper exclaimed that he had landed "right on the old bazoo!” Esquire 
said he "sounded like Granny on the Beverly Hillbillies." lohn Glenn "filled the 
first chapter in the Book of Space with five hours of unrelieved drivel." Rusty 
Schwcickart said. Hello dcre, as he walked in Space. Borman, Lovell and 
Anders, who read from Genesis on Christmas Eve, "share with the other astro- 
nauts a pronounced verbal dysfunction." 

The astronauts, warned Esquire, "are likely to litter the Internal aerie void with 
gibberish and twaddle and despoil the written record of man's reach for the stars 
with the sentiments of squares. 

Well, Esquire, you can quit worrying. When the chips were down- or rather 
the LM — Neil Armstrong, least talkative ot astronauts, but one hell of a pilot, 
did all right with the words too. 

"One small step for a man, one giant leap for Mankind will look all right in 
the history books alongside I regret I have but one life to give- for my country," 
In case you've forgotten, that was attributed to a square named Nathan Hale. 
Buzz Aid r in and Mike Collins weren't tongue-tied either. According to Time. 
"T he eloquence of the Apollo trio provided the finest moments of Richard Nix- 
on s elaborate state dinner in their honor." 

Okay, Esquire, you fly to the moon with Tiny Tim. Cassius Clay and Truman 
Capote. We'll go with Armstrong, Collins and Aldrin.

Apollo 12— Our Second Walk on the Moon 

This month Cmdr. Charles Conrad Jr. ( Cmdr, Richard F. Gordon Jr. and 
Lt. Cmdr. Alan L. Bean will blast off for Earth’s suddenly familiar satel- 
lite. While Gordon orbits to bring them home, Conrad and Bean will 
explore a new "base." How long will they stay? How far will they walk? 
What will they do that Apollo 11 didn't? To learn the answers to these 
and other questions, PM Editor Bob Crossley interviewed Col. James A. 
McDivitt, commander of Apollo 9 and Gemini 4, now NASA's manager 
of Lunar Landing Operations in the Apollo Spacecraft Program Office.

Crossley: First I’d like to ask you, Col- 
onel, toll ere toil! Apollo 12 land in relation 
to Apollo IVs Tranquillity Base? 
McDivitt: The site — it’s called Apollo Site 
7 —is to the west and a little south of 
Tranquillity Base. To give you another 
reference, it’s a bit south of the moon’s 
equator and west of the prime meridian. 
Crossley: Hou> close is Site 7 to the re- 
mains of Surveyor 3? 

McDivitt; Our target area may be from 
1000 to, say, 1500 feet from Surveyor. 
Crossley: WJwit do you hope to learn from 
the pieces of Surveyor that might be 
brought back? 

McDivitt: There are so many things that 
we could learn. For instance, if a piece of 
insulation were brought back, we could 
see if it had holes in it, indicating strikes 
by meteorites. The condition of a televi- 
sion camera would tell us how equipment 
with electronic components reacts to the 
moon’s environment, to bombardment by 
cosmic rays, and so forth. 

Crossley: How long has the Surveyor 
been on tke moon? 

McDivitt: About three years. And since 
we know the condition of the spacecraft 
when it left Earth, we can determine how 
it has deteriorated in the three years that 
it has been sitting on the moon’s surface. 
But before we leave this subject, ! want 
to stress that the primary objective of 
Apollo 12 is not to bring back pieces of 
Surveyor 3. That is only a secondary ob- 
fPieflge cant to

SECOND WALK ON THE MOON 

('Continued from page 50 J 

jective. We’ve got to develop a pinpoint 
landing capability, and picking such a site 
allows us to see what we can do. Were 
going to use various techniques to try to 
hit it. Well refine our techniques from 
one flight to the next, until we have a 
pinpoint landing capability. Incidentally, 
the objective of Apollo 11 was not to land 
at a certain spot — but just to land. 
Crossley: 1 understand that you’ve se- 
lected landing sites for each of the next 
niite missions. Is that correct? 

McDivitt: Not exactly. Let me explain. 
There ai’e a tremendous number of sites 
where one could land. We obviously can- 
not target for, say, 2000 landing points. So 
we have had to eliminate in order to re- 
duce the number to a usable total. About 
six months ago we had reduced the num- 
ber to 25 or 30 sets. From them, knowing 
that we had 10 lunar missions to fly, we 
selected 10 sites of prime importance. 
Now, bear in mind that they were selected 
from the scientific standpoint. And there's 
a big difference between selecting a site 
and being able to go there. So now, after 
we have selected these prime sites, we 
have to make sure that we have proper 
photography on them. We have to deter- 
mine that the terrain is smooth enough 
and that the approaches are all right, 
Crossley: What do you mean by "proper 
photography’'? 

McDivitt: Well, we have some very pre- 
cise photographs of a number of sites. 
These sites looked good scientifically for 
our lunar exploration program. So we had 
as many of them as possible photographed 
during the Lunar Or biter program. Both 
medium and high resolution photography 
were used — high resolution to cover the 
precise landing sites and medium to cover 
the surrounding area, out to maybe 50 or 
60 kilometers. We w r anted to know what 
radar would do in the approach to a site. 
Crossley: Plans for future Apollo missions 
call for a series of landings on the Earth- 
side of the moon. T elf me, Colonel , mill tue 
someday land men on the dark side? 
McDivitt: Oh yes. In fact there’s nothing 
right now to preclude such a landing. But 
I don’t think we’ll be doing it for some 
time because wc like to have communica- 
tions with the space capsule during de- 
scent. 

Cross ley : Yes, we're familiar with the fact 
that when a craft is behind the moon you 
lose radio contact u:ith it. Do you lose 
telemetry as u?el! as voice contact? 
McDivitt: Yes, everything. And that 

means that the three men in the space- 
craft lose the help of the thousands of 

52 



guys here on Earth. If you can't talk back 
and forth, you simply can't help those 
guys up there. 

Crossley: Since we toil? be making land- 
ing* on the dark side someday, horn do we 
lick the communications problem? 
McDivitt: By means of satellites. If you 
put three communications satellites in 
orbit around the moon, each 1 20 apart, 
there would always he one that men on 
the back side of the moon could transmit 
through. 

Crossley: Just the way we bounce signals 
off communications satellites around the 
Earth right now? 

McDivitt: Exactly. 

Crossley: Would it be complicated to get 
the satellites into orbit? 

McDivitt: Not really. It could be done 
quite easily with today s technology, if we 
had a larger spacecraft than we have now, 
we could fly a craft out there and pop the 
satellites out, one at a time. We have some 
of this capability in our command and ser- 
vice module right now. It has ark empty 
bay that we’re thinking of modifying to 
carry experiments. One of the things that 
could be done is to modify it to carry a 
satellite. As you know, communications 
satellites don't have to be very big, 
Crossley: That's interesting. Bui note I d 
like to get back to Apollo 12, Neil Arm- 
strong's manual landing had a lot to do 
a?ith the success of Apollo 11. But he al- 
most ran out of fuel on landing. Tell me, 
are there plans to carry tuore fuel on 
Apollo 12 s lunar mod ale? 

McDivitt: No, it can’t carry more fuel. 
There was as much on Apollo 11 as the 
spacecraft would hold. 

Crossley: So Apollo 12 toil l hat?c (o live 
uhth the same limitation? 

McDivitt: Right. And we'll fly Apollo 12 
exactly the same as we did 11. We have 
always had a manual landing capability 
built into the lunar module and it's un- 
likely that we'll ever take it out. I wouldn’t 
be surprised if every landing in our pro- 
gram is made just that way, 

Crossley: You mean a manual landing 
during th$ final seconds? 

McDivitt: Yes. because our knowledge of 
the surface simply is not that good. Cra- 
ters are so numerous. Photos we work 
with don’t show rocks two or three feet in 
diameter, and you don’t want to land on a 
rock that big. So the pilot has to look for 
the best place to land and head for it. 
Crossley: What about the computer 

aboard the LM? On Apollo 13 it seemed to 
get overloaded in the fbta! phase of de- 
scent . 

McDivitt: What happened was that the 
computer was looking at two different

The only slow-moving thing in Team 
McLaren is Rick McTurtle. the mascot 
Bruce McLaren found trying to 
cross the track during practice at St. 
Jovite. Rick has a lot of torque, but 
he doesn t rev very fast. 

The McLaren Can- Am cars are 



something else. They finished 1-2 at 
Watkins Glen and proved again that 
they were the fastest road- racing cars 
thewor Id had ever seen Bruce McLaren

SECOND WALK ON THE MOON 

(Continued from page 52 } 

800-cycle signals, one not phase-locked to 
the other. When that happens, the com- 
puter thinks it's seeing a lot of data. But a 
change has now been made. The computer 
won't even check those inputs unless the 
switch is in a particular position. We won t 
have that problem again. 

Crossley: Now let me ask you about the 
crew for Apollo 12 . Pete Conrad,, who’ll 
command , flew two Gemini missions, 
didn’t he? 

McDivitt: That’s right. And Dick Gordon 
flew one. 

Cross Icy: The third man, Alan Bean, has 
newer flown, right? 

McDivill: Right. 

Crosstey: Please tell me something about 

him, 

McDivitt: Well, he was on the backup 
crew for Apollo 9. He’s a hard worker 
and a very fine guy. 

Crossley: What generation of astronauts is 
he from? 

McDivitt: I think the third. He came in 
with fellows like Dave Scott, Rusty 
Schweickart and Charley Bassett. 

Cross ley: Do yon think it’s risky to send a 
rookie to fke moon? 

McDivitt: (Laughing) X think it's risky to 
send anybody to the moon. 

Crossley: As I recall, Apollo 11 was on fke 
moon a total of 2V/s hours. How long toil! 
Apolfo 12 stay? 

McDivitt: Probably 32 hours. We’re look- 
ing at times between 28 and 36 horn’s, but 
I think it will go 32, 

Crossley: Neil Armstrong’s extravehicular 
activity lasted for 2 hours and 20 minutes, 
ns J recall, and Bur: Aldrin’s 1 hour and 
40 minutes. How long u«f! Conrad and 
Bean stay outside the LM? 

McDivitt: Well, they’re going to be out- 
side on two EVAs rather than just one. 
and each will last about three and a half 
hours. The general plan is that they will 
land, do an EVA, rest, do another EVA. 
and then launch. 

Crossley: You say each EVA will last 
about three and a half hours. But the back- 
pack — the life-support system— only has 
oxygen for three or four hours , doesn’t if? 

At least that's the way if was on Apollo XI. 
McDivitt: No. You see. the system is re- 
. chargeable in the spacecraft. The lithium 
hydroxide canister, which cleanses the ox- 
ygen of contaminants, can be changed and 
the water recharged. The thing to remem- 
ber is that the portable life-support sys- 
tem is really not time- dependent as much 
as it is B/r.U. (British Thermal Unit) de- 
pendent, If you work very hard continu-

SECOND WALK ON THE MOON 

(Con tin tied from page 54} 

ously, the time that the system can supply 
you with cooling by evaporating water, 
supply you with oxygen and take out the 
carbon dioxide might be only about three 
hours. But if you work very slowly at a 
steady rate, you might use the same sys- 
tem for five hours. So you see, it's really a 
rate-dependent thing. 

Crossley: How much rest will the men 
need between the two EVA periods? 
McDivitt: We're thinking in terms of pe- 
riods of about 8 to 11 hours. 

Crossley: How far will they walk from 
the LM this time? 

McDivitt: We’re limited in how far we can 
go from the LM by a thing that we call 
the oxygen-purge system, It*s the backup 
system to the portable life-suppoiT sys- 
tem, Since it has 30 or 40 minutes of oxy- 
gen in it, and you want to allow 15 min- 
utes of it for clambering up the ladder 
and getting back in the LM, you can only 
go 15 or 20 minutes away from the LM. 
Crossley: Is there any danger of the guys 
getting lost if they go fairly far from the 
spacecraft? 

McDivitt: No, I don't think so. I think that 
you can go a mile from the LM without 
worrying about getting lost 
Crossley: Will one astronaut remain at the 
LM or will both go? 

McDivitt; They'll go together. 

Crossley: Let me ask you about the ex- 
periments planned for Apollo 12. On 
Apollo 11 they deployed a solar wind ex- 
periment, a passive seismometer and a 
laser ranging retro- reflector. What exper- 
iments mill be deployed next rime? 
McDivitt: Let's see. It's a much more so- 
phisticated package than we had on Apollo 
11 and is designed to provide a great vari- 
ety of information, ilt’s referred to as 
AL.SEF, standing for Apollo Lunar Surface 
Experiments Package. I'll read you the 
titles of the experiments included: Pas- 
sive Seismic Experiment, Active Seismic 
Experiment, Lunar Surface Magnetometer 
Experiment, Solar Wind Experiment, Su- 
pratherma! Ion Detector Experiment, Cold 
Cathode Gauge Experiment, Heat Flow* 
Experiment, Charged Particle Lunar En- 
vironment Experiment. 

Crossley; That's quite a package. I won’t 
ask you to explain them all. But what's in- 
volved in the Active Seismic Experiment? 
McDivitt; It’s designed to create a seismic 
disturbance. A mortar box assembly holds 
four grenades that can be launched — on 
command from Earth — and exploded at 
various distances. Seismic waves created 
will be detected by a geophone array. The

STIHL 



The Chain Saw for All Types 
of Occasional-users & Jobs! 



When we designed our new STIHL S-10 Economy 
Model - we expected It to appeal to a goodly 
number of cutters — ranging from small property 
owners and farmers to “occasional-users" and 
campers. 

We did not, at the time, give too much emphasis 
to the age brackets. We have since learned, as 
indicated in our illustration, that the 5-10 also 
stimulates the creative impulses of our young 
modems. How about carving-out a few “70003" 
ideas of. your own , , . with a STIHL S-10. 



SECOND WALK ON THE MOON 

f Continued from page 56F ) 

purpose is to measure the elastic proper- 
ties of the lunar subsurface material to a 
depth of about 500 feet. 

Crossley: And the Cold Cathode Gauge 

Experiment? 

McDivitt: It's designed to provide data 
pertaining to the density of the lunar am- 
bient atmosphere. The scientists are par- 
ticularly interested in determining any 
variations of the particle density asso- 
ciated with lunar phase or solar activity. 
Cross Icy : Please tell me something about 
the Heat Flow Experiment. 

McDivitt: It measures the lunar tempera- 
ture profile at depths up to 10 feet and 
also the value of the moon’s thermal con- 
ductivity to the same depth. These mea- 
surements may tell us what the outward 
flow of heat is from the moon’s interior. 
The data may indicate whether the melt- 
ing point may be approached deep inside 
the moon. But let me say this about all of 
the experiments: their purpose is to pro- 
vide scientists with a great amount of data 
about the lunar environment, especially 
in the areas of geology, geochemistry, 
geophysics, particles and fields. Broadly 
speaking, this is the kind of knowledge 
that will in time provide us with an un- 
derstanding of the moon, where it came 
from, how it was created, and we'll also 
get insights into the formation of our 
solar system. Incidentally, scientists were 
enthralled with the data and specimens 
provided by Apollo 11. 

Crossley: Collecting rock samples is still 
part of the scientific program, isn't it? 
McDivitt: Oh yes, we’ll get rocks, core 
samples, contingency samples, 

Crossley: Cood, Now Vd like to get onto 
another topic. Tel! me, will there be color 
TV from the moon this time? 

McDivitt: I don’t know. We’re working on 
it. The color TV cameras we have now are 
not compatible with vacuum operations or 
extreme thermal environments. They have 
to be modified. But I don't know if there’s 
enough time remaining to test them ade- 
quately before the mission gets underway. 
We can carry only one TV camera, you 
know; we want to be sure it works. 
Crossley: Note I’d tike to ask a personal 
question. Colonel, you, Wally Schirrn and 
Frank Borman have all retired or given 
up /light duty. All 0 / you took that step 
shortly after serving as commander on a 
mission. Can you tell me why you veteran 
astronauts are dropping out, so to speak? 
McDivitt: 3. can't tell you why the other 
guys did, but I can tell you my reasons. 
When 1 came down I realized that there

that's economical to operate. Three-fourths of the owners we 
queried have the smallest available engine in their car and 
three-fourths have manual shift — and they’re getting 21 to 25 
miles per gallon. Among the few complaints: There are some 
rattles and there isn’t a glove box.

SECOND WALK ON THE MOON 

f Continued /rum page 56 H) 

wasn't going to be another Apollo flight 
for me for some time. I felt then — and I 
feel now — that I could go on another space 
flight today or next year. But a longer 
interval — that would be different. 

At any rate, it became apparent that 
there would be a gap in my flying, and so 
1 decided to step down. You see, I don’t 
think you should be flying if you’re too 
old, if you don t have the desire and drive 
that’s called for. The training requires a 
heck of a lot of enthusiasm and really 
hard work. And when you can't put out the 
way you used to, then you are not going to 
be properly trained for the mission. 
Crossley: But having been so deeply in- 
volved in the program for so long, don’t 
you still feel a burning desire to go to the 
moon? 

McDivitt: Sure, I want to go and land on 
the moon, But I don't think I want it so 
badly that 1 would jeopardize the entire 
space program by going off there when I 
wasn’t the best guy to do it. I always felt 
that if I couldn't be the best astronaut, I 
shouldn't be one at all. If there is a guy 
available who is better, then he should be 
flying, not me. You know, if vve have a 
number of failures in the space program, 
it will be a lot less popular than it is now. 
No, I don’t think a man should put his 
pride or ambition above the best interests 
of the program or of his country. 

Cross ley; That's a very good answer. The 
thought strikes me that the astronauts are 
so carefully selected and so superbly 
trained, that they are, in a sense, inter- 
changeable. 

McDivitt: Exactly. There are so many 
young fellow's who can do just as good a 
job as the older guys. Take Gemini 4 as an 
example. Ed White and I were on the 
prime crew, and Jim Lovell and Frank 
Borman were the backup crew. None of 
US had hardly even seen a spacecraft till 
we got here. And we did all right. No, I 
don't think you need a wealth of experi- 
ence in space flight to be able to do a good 
job. But 1 do think you have to have a 
great amount of drive and desire. 

Crossley: A final question , I don’t know ij 
you 're aware of it, but there’s a movement 
ajoot to have the ashes of Willy Ley, the 
late science and space renter, scattered on 
the moon. In fact. Popular Mechanics had 
an editorial on it in the September issue. 
Noia, mould such a thing be possible? 
McDivitt: I couldn’t say. I guess some- 
thing like that would have to be decided 
on a very high level. 

Crossley: Thank you, Colonel, for an in- 
teresting interview. * * *

The horse is better than 

most 1970 cars.

We ate not joking. The 
run-of-the-mill 1970 car is an 
affront to progress. 

It’s too expensive to buy. 
And too expensive to run. 
It’s almost impossible to park 
and maneuvering it through 
city traffic would try the 



nerves of a saint. 

You’d be better off with 
a horse. 

Which is sure-footed , 
inexpensive, maneuverable 
and it eats hay. Nice, cheap, 
hay. 

We, at Renault, are one of 
the few automakers to make 
a car that’s better than the 



The Renault 10. 

Since it gets 35 miles to 
the gallon, it is cheap to run. 

And since it has inde- 
pc ndent suspension and disc 
brakes, it is sure-footed and 
easy to stop. 

And since it is maneu- 
verable, it is easy to park. 

And since it costs $1,7251 
it is easy to buy. 

And it is also more 
com Portable than the horse.

THE CANADA GOOSE is a tough bird to lure within gun range. The more decoys a 
hunter uses, the better his chances are of bringing home a wild goose for Thanksgiving 
dinner. But full-bodied decoys are expensive and heavy, and a gunner may run into 
off-season storage problems. The answer is stick-up silhouettes. Several companies 
make these cardboard deceivers which can be waterproofed for several seasons’ use by 
coating the decoy’s surface with flat varnish. A wax -based waterproofing — like that 
used on canvas tents— also works weU. 

Nebraskan waterfowler Pete Czura points out that the wooden stakes provided by 
some of the silhouette manufacturers are not strong enough for repeated use and rec- 
ommends that a gunner substitute sturdier stakes of his own devising. He also suggests 
that the stakes should be painted a flat black or gun-metal gray to lull the suspicions of 
wary honkers. The lightweight decoys illustrated are made by Canadian Decoys, Box 66, 
Rosemont, Minn. 

NEW TRACER ARROWS have just been 
introduced by Pearson. Ever had the frus- 
tration of a missed shot compounded by 
the loss of your arrow? All archers have 
had this experience. Now, to cut down on 
such losses, Ben Pearson has created a 
“tracer'’ arrow with bright orange feathers 
and a fluorescent crest that offers a high 
visibility for humans but will appear gray 
to color-blind game animals. Offered in a 

variety of lengths 
and with different 
points, the arrow’s 
are made of Port 
Orford cedar and 
are matched within 
5 grains in 5-pound 
spine increments for 
40 to 60-pound 
bows. Six field ar- 
rows and six hunt- 
ing arrows come in 
a handy-pack avail- 
able at Ben Pearson 
dealers for $22, 





THE SIERRA TRAIL BOSS is the latest 
product from Veseley Co. (2101 N. Lapeer 
Rd., Lapeer, Mich. 48446), manufacturer of 
Apache-brand camping and travel trailers. 
This ATV unit claims a speed of 35 mph on 
land and 5 mph in water and easily climbs 
a 45 dry, dirt slope. Power is supplied by 
a 20-hp, 2-eycle Kohler engine with auto- 
matic torque converter, and the unit retails 
for $1495. ★ * *

I am printing my message in a maga - 
line. It may cum& b the attention of 
thousands of ayes. But of all those 
thousands, only a few will have the 
vision to understand. Many may read; 
but of a thousand only you may have 
the intuition, the sensiiivrtjr, lo "under- 
stand that what I am writing may be 
intended for you — may be the tide that 
slopes your destiny, which, taken at 
the crest, carries you to levels of inde- 
pendence beyond the dreams of avarice. 

Don’t misunderstand me. There is 
ho mysticism in this. 1 am not ftfieak- 
ins of occult things, of innumerable 
laws of nature that will sweep you to 
siiccws without effort on yuqr part. 
That sort of talk is rubbish! And any- 
one who tries to tell you that you can 
think your way to riches without effort 
is a false friend. I am ton much of a 
realist for that, And I hope you are. 

1 hope you are the kind of man — if 
you have read this far — wlm knows 
that anything worthwhile has to be 
earned! 1 hope you have learned that 
there is no reward without effort. If 
you have learned this, then you may be 
ready to take the next, step in the 
development of your karma— you may 
be ready to learn and use the secret I 
have to impart.

of money, I have if, I have gone beyond 
the need oF Enin I hive twn b^inrsssre ihat

I have need for. And, in addition, I have 
the sat Is in idi on — (he deep satishiHiion — of 
knowing that 1 have put more lhan three 
hundred other men in businesses of their

greatest satisfaction I get from life is shar- 
ing my secret of personal independence 
wish other s see ing I hem achieve the same 
heights of happiness I hat have come into 
my OWn Life. 

Please don't misunderstand this state- 
ment. I am swl a philanthropist. I believe 
that charily is something that no proud 
man will accept. % have never Seen a man

something for ncilhing. I have never met a

spected who did mi sacrifice something to 



I’d like to give this to 
my fellow men*.. 

while I am still able to help! 



I waa young once, as you may be — 
today I am older. No! too old to enjoy 
the fruits of my work, but older in the 
sense of being wiser. And once I wag 
poor, desperately poor. Today almost 
any man nn stretch hk income to 
make ends meet. Today; there are few 
who hunger for bread and shelter. But 
in my youth 1 knew the pinch of pov- 
erty- the emptiness of hunger; the cold

past. And behind my city house, my

A Fascinating and Peculiar 

Business 

I have a business that is peculiar — one of 
my businesses. The unusual thing about it 
is that it is needed in every little community 
throughout this country. But it is a busi- 
ness that will never be invaded by the ’'big 
fellow-*." |i has lo be handled on a local 
beaia No giant octopus can ever gobble up 
the whole thing. No big combine is ever 
going lo destroy it It is essentially a “one 
man" business that Can be operated with- 
out outside help. It is a business that is 
good summer and winter. It is * lousiness 
that is growing each year. And, it b a busi- 
ness that can be started on an investment 
so small that it b within lb* reach ol any- 
one who has a television set. Hut it has 
nothing to do with television, 

This business has another peculiarity. It 
can be started at homo in spare lime. No 
risk to present job. No risk to present in- 
come. And no need to let anyone know 
you ire "on your own,'" If can be run as a 
spare lime business for extra money. Or, 
as it grows to the point where it is paying 
more than \wr present salary, il can be 
expanded into n full time business- — -over- 
night. It can give you a sense of personal 
independence that wilt free you forever 
from the fear of lay -off, lou of job, depres- 
sions, or economic reverses. 

Are You Mechanically Inclined? 

While the opera! son of this business is 
partly automAtic, it won't run itself. If you 
orO lo use It as a stepping stone to inde- 
pendence. you must be able to work with 
your hands, U»e *UCh tools ns hammer and 
■crew driver. And enjoy get ting into a pair 
of blur jeans and rolling up your sleeve*. 
But two hours a day of manual work will 
keep your “factory* running 24 hours tura- 
tfif out a product that has a steady and 



ready sale in every community- A half 
dollar spent for raw materials can bring 
you six dollars in cash — six times a day. 

In thia message I'm not going to try to 
tell you the entire story. There is not 
enough spare on this jiage P And. I un i»t 
going to ask you to spend a penny now to 
team the secret, TH pend you all the in* 
formation, free. If you ore interested in 
becoming independent, in becoming your 
own boss, in knowing the sweet Irttite of 
success as I know them, send me your

Does Happiness Hang on Your

Dun't pul Ibis off. It may be a coincidence 
lhal you arc reading these words right now. 
Or, it may be a matter thal is more deeply 
connected with your destiny than either of

SOLUTIONS FOR MECHANICAL HEADACHES 

AUTOMOBILE CLINIC 



BY MORT SCHULTZ 



Snappy spring 

Last year, while backing my 1965 Cor- 
vette (396-cu.-in. engine) into a parking 
spot, the No. 6 cylinder intake valve 
.spring snapped. It cost me a small fortune. 
Now, almost a year to the day later, the 
same thing happened to the same cylin- 
der. The only difference is that I was 
traveling about 65 mpk in fourth gear, 
Any ideas? — S/Sgt. William F. Moore Jr,, 
APO New York. 

Check the rocker-arm stud for that 
intake valve for looseness. A loose stud 
wdl cause undue stress on the valve 
spring which. In time, will cause the 
spring to break. If the stud is loose, re- 
place it with one that's oversize. The stud 
hole will have to be reamed to accommo- 
date the larger stud. 

Hot bug 

Recently I saw an advertisement for a 
“2-bbl Carburetor Ram Induction Mani- 
fold Kit" for Volkswagen that claimed to 
give a 50 percent increase in horsepower 
at top speed. Can this be true? Would you 
recommend the use of such a device?’— 
Robert A. Flanagan, Norfolk, Va. 

You won’t get anywhere near that 
much additional power. The smallest part 
of your car's Induction system is the 
valves. No matter what you do, you can 
only shove so much fuel past those re- 
stricted intakes. My answer to your sec- 
ond question is a question of my own. 
What will this device buy you? It won’t 
harm your engine, I’m sure, but is it 
worth the the money? VW of America in 
Englewood Cliffs, NX, doesn't think so. 
The company frowns on you adding any- 
thing of this sort to your car. 

Transmission leak 

The governor plate on the automatic 
transmission of my 1965 Rambler Am- 
bassador lets fluid drip past. Not a lot, but 
it’s steady. The dealer has tried a new 
plate and many new gaskets. No luck. 
Please help. — Ronald S. Price, Westfield, 
NX 

I’d have to conclude that the surface of 
the transmission isn’t perfect at this point, 
In cases like this, applying No, 1 or No. 2 



Fermatex beneath the gasket should stop 
the leak. If not, I’m afraid you’ll have to 
have the surface machined, and that's a 
big job. 

Gas trap 

Gasoline is constantly getting into the 
modulator valve of my 1963 Chevy Impala 
with 327 engine and automatic transmis- 
sion, resulting in rough shifting. The car- 
buretor has been overhauled twice. Ga- 
rages cannot explain what causes this. 
Where do I turn next? — James Willen- 
bring, Cape Girardeau, Mo. 

This old problem happens when the car- 
buretor bleeds down a bit or runs on a 
rich mixture. Enough gas can drip through 
the straight modulator line to flood the 
modulator, causing your rough shifting 
action. The fix is to put a bend in this line 
to create a trap, much like the elbow pipe 
on your kitchen drain. 

Noise abatement 

When my 1967 Falcon Future ( 200-cu 
in. engine) is cold, the valves clatter for 
about 10 minutes before they quiet down. 
The Ford dealer says all Falcon hydraulic 
valves are noisy. Are they?- — W. C. Dou- 
gherty, Butler, NX 

Not if you’ve changed oil and oil filter 
as often as you should. But there’s an- 
other possibility. A worn valve guide can 
act like a noisy hydraulic valve, It gives 
the same type of noise. A good mechanic 
can tell the difference between a worn, 
clicking valve guide and a noisy hydraulic 
lifter by putting pressure against the 
valve spring while the engine is idling. A 
sloppy feel indicates a worn valve guide. 
If the problem is with the valve guide (or 
guides), rebore the guide to oversize 
(.003", .015" or .030") and fit the cylinder 
head with the appropriate oversize valve 
(or valves). This is the least expensive 
way of fixing the trouble. Of course, if 
guide wear is more than 030" you’ll have 
to replace the cylinder head.

drive iou» is nearly impossible unless 1 
stop. The book sai/s it's supposed to work 
at 5 mpk, but the dealer says this is nor* 
ttiqI. Who's right? — Chester Pajak, Gal- 
way, N,Y. 

T hoy both are. Jeep four-wheel-drive 
gearboxes are stiff as a board when new 
and tough to manipulate. As you’ve found 
out, you often have to stop and then shift. 
As you use the unit, it will loosen up and 
will eventually allow shifting at that 5 
mph speed. Be patient. 

Taking in air 

Can ^ou tell me why my ’57 Buick Riv- 
iera. whistles at me? It’s a high-pitched 
whistle that comes from beneath the hood, 
and it s heard toheneuer 1 start out in 
the morning. •-‘•John Domench, Stockton, 
Calif. 

Check for a loose intake manifold 
which leaks air to produce a whistle. 
Spread some oil around the manifold and 
carburetor and start the engine, If the 
area is leaking, you’ll see the oil being 
drawn in. Just tighten it all down, and the 
whistle will stop. 

Ventless fuel tank 

/ have <i 1968 Pontiac Catalina with 
4Q0-cu,-in. engine and 2-bbL carburetor. 
Why does tkis engine stall out when driv- 
ing along at 45-50 mph? It just dies. No 
sputter — no falter. It always restarts eas- 
ily and immediately . The trouble has 
been occurring about mice or twice a 
month. — C. J. Meloshie, Netcong . A ? .J, 

One good reason is insufficient venting 
of the gas tank, causing the fuel pump to 
suck fumes rather than fuel. There may 
be a crimp tn the rubber tube that runs 
down from the gas filler neck to vent your 
gas tank. Or, more likely, the tank just 
isn’t vented enough. I’d drill a Vs-in, hole 
in the center of the gas cap. 

Sloppy shock 

Ids difficult to diagnose noise problems 
without driving a car, but maybe you 
know why I get a terrible rattle in the 
rear of my 1968 Toronado when l hit a 
bump. It's tough to live with . — Bill Shane. 
Miami. 

A few of these models have shown up 



with loose retainers in the shock tower of 
the rear vertical shock upper mounting. 
The shock has to be detached from the 
top, compressed and a nut installed to the 
extreme end of the bolt threads. After 
attaching the shock to the retainer, the 
lower nut has to be torqued to 100 ft, -lb. 
to seat the shock in the retainer. Your 
Olds dealer knows about this. 

Service Tips 

• Chrysler Corp, has issued words ot wis- 
dom regarding youf engine and the fuel it 
bums. One and two-barrel carburetor power* 
pfants (170. 225, 273, 318 and 383 cu.*in.) 
are designed to operate on regular fuel. If a 
spark knock is experienced, either change to 
a regular gas of higher octane or retard the 
ignition timing up to 3“ from specification. 
Four-barrel carburetor engines (340, 383, 426 
and 440 cu.-in.) run on premium fuel. If 
spark knock is encountered, try a fuel with 
higher octane or retard timing up to 3° from 
spec. Chrysler says the highest octane gas 
you can get in your area should be used in 
its 440 magnum engine, 

• General Motors has cautioned all dealers 
to guard against overfilling automatic trans- 
missions prior to delivery of new cars. Over- 
filling leads to foaming, which can cause er- 
ratic shifting and damage transmission com- 
ponents. Be doubly sure and check the trans* 
mission yourself. Drive the car for at least 15 
minutes and park it level with the transmis- 
sion lever in Park and the engine idling. Fluid 
level should be at full to J A-in. below full. 

• Some 1969 Lincolns have gotten into the 
field with an incorrect steering centerlink. 
It's not a hazard, but the wrong centerlink 
will contact a starter motor mounting bolt- 
head during a full right turn and cause a 
rattle. The incorrect part Is bowed toward the 
starter motor, The correct one (part Mo. C8VY- 
3304-B) is bowed out to clear the starter 
motor, 

• Chrysler, Plymouth and Dodge station 
wagons didn't have a safety relay incorp- 
orated into their power tailgate circuitry until 
later in the 1969 model year. This relay pre- 
vents operation of the window unless the 
ignition swttch is in the "on” position. If you 
want this in your 1968 or early 1969 model, 
see your dealer. Service bulletin 69-23-19 
(4/2S/69) explains how to do the job on 
Chrysters and Plymouth^. Service bulletin 
69-23-21 details the Dodge procedure. * * ★

The most logical reason for the break is 
inadequate bedding {tamped gravel) over 
unstable soil. There could be other causes, 
such as a yet undiscovered leak in the 
plumbing, earthquake or settling of earth 
fill. A leak in plumbing will show up 
somewhere on the outside sooner or lat- 
er. An earthquake is only a guess and any 
other unusual features of the location can 
be judged only by an on-the-spot check 
of the immediate locality. 

The only repair you can carry out with- 
out delay is to remove the affected tiles, 
lift the carpeting and then pour a thin 
mbc of prepared concrete patcher into the 
crack, troweling or brushing it flush with 
the surface. There’s no way to tell in ad- 
vance if this will hold. If the settling — or 
whatever the original cause — continues, 
then the patch is likely to break, but if 
the floor has stabilized the chances are 
good the patch will hold. 

Glass top creeps 

I bane a small lamp table with a platen- 
glass top. The tabletop seems perfectly 
true, but the glass will not stay in place. 
It steadily “creeps’’ to one side and it’s 
giving me the creeps , too. If 1 move the 
table, the glass top still moves to one side 
or the other. What could cause this and 
what can be done to make the glass stay 
put? — OJl., Ga. 

After reading your description I can al- 
most “feel” the tabletop move. I’m going 
to guess that the cause is vibration set up 
when you walk across the floor or by 
passing cars and trucks on your street or a 
nearby highway. If the tabletop (the 
’ wood top) is perfectly fiat and the floor is 
level or nearly so, the remedy is to seat 
the glass top on four or five rubber 
squares. You can cut them from a wide 
rubber band or you can obtain rubber 
discs made for the purpose from office 




supply stores. Use four or five discs, de- 
pending on the size of the glass top, plac- 
ing one disc at each comer and one in the 
center. Comer discs should be placed 
about 1 to 1 Vi in, in from the edges. If the 
top tends to “teeter” on the center disc 
it should be removed, of course, and you 
will have to be careful not to weight the 
top too heavily at the center. The top 
should be at least ¥4 in. thick. 

Remover won’t remove 

I tried to remove the finish from an old 
blanket chest, one of those things having 
a lidded box on top and a drawer under- 
neath. The remover took off the paint in 
a jiffy but it won’t touch the reddish finish 
underneath . An antiquarian has told me 
that in wanting to take off the reddish 
finish Vm guilty of a “vandalism.” She 
says this should be preserved. I resent 
being called names. Is she right? — C.T., 
W.Va. 

I 

I want nothing to do with the quarrel 
over “vandalism,’ but in saying that the 
“reddish” finish should be preserved, she’s 
right. No doubt she’s thinking of the added 
value of the red finish to the piece as 
an antique. Undoubtedly, this is the 
original finish and is well worth preserv- 
ing as is. If this value appeals to you, just 
wash off the residues of the remover and 
forget all about wanting to see the pine 
or poplar under the red. There's no telling 
for sure what was in the original finish 
but probably one ingredient was skimmed 
milk, the casein content of which usually 
defies the action of many common paint 
and varnish removers. You can take off 
the old finish with a cabinetmaker’s scrap- 
er, but I wouldn’t recommend it for the 
reason your antiquarian has given, also 
because that procedure will take some 
doing. 

‘Rain* lilies 

We’ve just moved to our new home. On 
a porch we found three small pots with a 
dry growth that appears to be a kind of 
grass. I set them out along the garage, it 
rained, and now new growth is coming. 
This looks like a very coarse, wide- 
bladed grass. 1 took the pots inside and 
shortly a lily-like flower appeared in one. 
Can you guess what this might be? 
H.R. t Tenn. 

You probably have what are commonly 
known as “rain” lilies — originally said to 
be desert plants. It’s best to keep them 
inside during the winter,, preferably in a 
basement. When you water them again in 
spring, new growth will appear and they 
should bloom as before, * + *

Sand-filled plastic barrels, water-filled 

cells, empty oil drums, a net— one of these may save your life 

when your car careens toward a deadly highway abutment 

By E, D. PALES JR. 



I T'S YOUR NECK and they’re thinking up surprising new ways to save it when 
you run off the road and hit an abutment or other fixed object. Half of the traf- 
fic deaths in the country are caused by cars leaving the road and hitting concrete 
piers, parapets and utility poles. 

Some of the new devices employ new mechanical principles— one is adapted 
from the landing gear of the lunar module— but they work. One uses an odd ‘‘metal 
bender’' system similar to that used for slowing the plane-arresting cables on air- 
craft carriers. One of the most effective is a “tennis net** that suddenly drops 
across the road and snares your car. The net (of nylon or steel) can stop a heavy 
truck at high speeds. 

Among the systems being tested are: 

• Sand-filled plastic drums that burst when hit by a car; 

• Empty oil drums that fold accordionlike when hit at 50-60 mph; 

• “Rolling ring” shock absorbers inside telescoping tubes; 

• Water-filled rubber ceils that are placed in front of dangerous fixed objects on 
the roadside. 

Some of the new devices are still in the design state, but most arc now' being 
installed experimentally. On San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge recently a driver 
blacked out while approaching a toll gate at. high speed. The toll- taker ducked 
behind the protective abutment. It was shielded by an array of “Hi-Dro Cushion”

great geyser and fell like a cloudburst. 
The driver was uninjured and the car 
could be driven after the impact. “Hi-

abutments — have already saved 10 lives 
in several states. 

Connecticut will soon install 20 
” Fitch Inertial Barriers,” a system that 



employs sand -filled plastic drums, de- 
signed by former racing driver John 
Fitch. These do a remarkable job of 
stopping cars up to 70 mph. 

Most exciting of all is the “tennis 
net,” now being marketed commer- 
cially under the name “Dragnet.” This 
is a mechanism designed by men who 
have safely stopped a fully loaded air- 






container

DRAGNET uses principle of aircraft arresting gear

attached by melol topes to "Me tot Bender/' When 
cor strikes fence, topes weave through bender*

liner that aborted takeoff at about 200 
mph. The first Dragnet is now protect- 
ing drivers at a Houston, Tex.* ferry 
slip where several cars have gone into 
the water. Others may soon be tested 
by Ihe federal government to protect 
railroad grade crossings. High-speed 
trains — like the Penn Central’s new 
Metroliner between New York and 
Washington — can clock 120 mph only 
occasionally because of the danger of 
hitting a vehicle at a grade crossing. 
Drivers can’t see fast trains approach- 
ing. Special crossing nets have been 
designed for study by the U S. Depart- 
ment of Transportation. If a car heads 
for the tracks as a train approaches, the 
net will snag it and — without damaging 
it — hold it out of the supertram’s path. 

These nets, made by the Van Zelm 
Co,, of Providence, R.I., are so strong 
and gentle that they can even be strung 
between police cars to snag fugitives 
attempting to crash road blocks at 
speeds up to 100 mph. 

The nets can be installed on long, 
steep grades where the brakes on 
trucks have been known to fail. In the 
event of failure, the driver will steer 
for a marked “escape chute.” A net 
will seize the truck and slow it. Steel 
rails on both sides of the chute will 
prevent jackknifing. Then a second net 



will drop in front of the truck and snub 
it to a safe stop. 

What’s it like to hit a net at 60 — -or 
even 80? On a strip near Providence the 
other day a test driver named Bill Birch 
tried it. He was driving a ’68 Toronado. 

“I was coming so fast I couldn’t even 
see the net until the last seconds,” he 
said. He heard a “poof.” The nylon had 
snared his front end, wrapping tight 
around the bumper and grille. He 
heard a shrill, anguished screeching. 
Then he saw steel cables holding him 
back and he was stopped. The screech 
had come from the cables which ended 
in thin steel tapes. These had been 
pulled and bent at terrific speed in a 
maze of rollers called a “Metal Bend- 
er.” Birch examined the car for dam- 
age; the paint wasn't even scratched. 

Equally amazing in their effect on 
car and driver are the Fitch Inertial 
Barriers. A test driver who has hit 
them at 60 mph says the sensation is 
“like hitting a deep puddle of water.” 
While the cars suffer front-end damage, 
many of them can be driven away after 
60-mph crashes. 

Empty oil drums, set in rows in front 
of abutments, have already prevented 
several crash fatalities. The “Texas 
Crash Cushion” system is being devef-

organized almost overnight by pri- 
vate aviation, transforming a remote 
Arctic plain into a complex of air- 
strips. The success of the operation, 
in which I am lucky to play a part, 
depends to a great degree on the ex- 
perience and ability of the air crews. 

The purpose of the mission is to 
support the big oil strike on Alaska’s 
North Slope. Even veteran oil men, 
accustomed to doing things on a 
grand scale, find it hard to believe 
that it was only about a year and a 
half ago that the big news came back 
from the Atlantic Richfield Co.’s test 
hole at Prudhoe Bay, There, under 
the tundra south of the Arctic 
Ocean, was a reservoir that held be- 
tween 5 and 10 billion barrels of oil. 
It’s a big one. In the history of the 
petroleum industry, only 21 fields 
have ever produced as much as a 
billion barrels. 

The discovery posed a big prob- 
lem: how to move exploratory par- 
ties and drill rigs to the hostile, 
bleak North Slope, and how to keep 
them supplied. By sea, it’s about 2000 
miles from Anchorage up through 
the Bering Strait and a narrow chan- 
nel to the landing beaches on the 
north coast. At best, the channel is 
open for only three months out of 
the year. No established roads or 
railways extend north of Fairbanks, 
the nearest terminal, which lies 400 
miles south of the strike over the 
barren Brooks Range. 

This left an aerial “bridge” as the 
only year-long alternative. Rising 
from near sea level at Fairbanks, the 
bridge climbs northward across the 
Yukon and over the Brooks Range, 
where 10,000 feet is listed as a safe 
instrument altitude. 

Once over the Brooks Range, we 
slant down and terminate at one of 
the strips scraped in the frozen ter- 
rain, At first, most of these were sim- 
ply level areas on frozen lakes or the 
tundra. During the past year gravel 
pads have been laid over the perma- 
frost— the permanently frozen sub-

surface layer of earth and moisture— 
and the major strips rest on these pads. 
Together with the lake strips, these 
ports constitute a hub of air activity 
equal in many respects to any major 
terminal in the “lower 48.” At last re- 
port, there were almost 40 low- 
frequency beacons assigned to the 
Slope, all within a few minutes* flying 
time of one another, 

It isn’t easy flying. Ice fogs cause 
whiteouts that erase horizons and make 
contact flying a tricky combination of 
instrument and eyeball modes. The 
strips and their infrequent lights seem 
suspended in a milky void where there 
is no horizon, thus no up or down. 
Vertigo can hit a man just walking in a 
whiteout. Landing a plane requires 
considerable faith in instruments that 
often contradict a pilot’s vision and 
sense of balance. 

Landing is the critical part of the 
Slope flights. The only serious acci- 
dents last year occurred to incoming 
aircraft One huge Lockheed Hercules 
130 turboprop landed short of a runway 
and lost a prop Another “Herk” actu- 
ally bounced off a near- vertical cliff 
during a letdown, then staggered aloft 
again and was flown back to Fairbanks 
for repairs. 

But such difficulties aloft are almost 
overshadowed by those facing the me- 
chanics, the real heroes of any Arctic 
operation, 

“In winter,” reported the Atlantic 
Richfield Co., “the surface is frozen 
concrete-hard Steel pilings driven 
into the permafrost have crumpled like 
accordions. At temperatures of 65 be- 
low zero, ordinary steel implements are 
likely to shatter Eke glass on impact, so 
special care must be taken in the use of 
heavy equipment.” 

If an engine is not kept heated — or 
running well above idle — oil congeals 
to the point where a man can hang on 
the prop of a light plane without turn- 
ing it. To restart a heavy diesel engine

operating there, costs an estimated $500 
in heating and coaxing operations. 
Large piston engines on planes would 
be even more expensive; we keep ours 
turning even during loading and un- 
loading when the thermometer sinks 
below minus 20 F, 

And that is the mean temperature in 
January north of the Brooks; a week of 
minus 70 temperatures was recorded 
near Fairbanks last winter. Hydraulic 
lines cracked like cold licorice, carbon 
in microphones refused to vibrate, A 
pilot toggled a cockpit switch in one of 
our planes and the crystallized metal 
snapped off in his fingers. Oil riggers 
and mechanics have learned to respect 
the “chill factor —the combined effect 
of wind and severe cold. At 40" below, 
a 25-knot wind produces the same ef- 
fect as a minus 104 ' temperature in 
still airf 

Despite such handicaps, the aerial 
bridge had to be stretched northward if 
oil was to flow from the Slope. Starting 
with a single drilling rig in early 1968. 
oil companies planned to have a dozen

the statistics; Fairbanks, only one-fifth 
as large as Anchorage, now boasts the

C ONTAINER SHIPS- — vessels whose 
cargo is carried in standardized 
shipping containers to speed loading 
and unloading — -are fast making gen- 
eral cargo ships obsolete. The result 
has been that shippers of odd-shaped 
and oversized cargo — autos, tractors, 
buses, bulldozers, farm machinery, 
steam shovels— have found themselves 
boxed out. Their products don’t fit 
into standard containers* 

The answer is a new type of cargo 
vessel, known as a roll on roll off 
{RO RO) container ship, that handles 
almost anything that can be pushed, 
pulled or driven aboard. The cargo is 
wheeled into the vessel over a stern 
ramp that is lowered to a floating plat- 
form attached to the dock. While con- 
tainers are being lifted aboard by over- 
head cranes, RO RO cargo rolls in over 
the ramp. 

The new concept in cargo transpor- 
tation was introduced by Atlantic Con- 
tainer Line, Ltd., a consortium of six 
major steamship lines: Canard, The 
French Line, Holland- American, Swed- 



ish American, Swedish Transatlantic 
and Wallenius Line. 

Four of the new ships, Atlanta Star, 
Atlantic Saga, Atlantic Soap and At- 
lantic Span each carry 485 20-foot con- 
tainers or 227 40-foot containers, or a 
mixture of both sizes. Containers are 
carried on the upper deck or in the 
forward part of the hold. In addition, 
each ship can carry 1150 automobiles 
plus a mixed cargo of rolling stock. The 
six internal decks provide a cargo space 
of nearly two million cubic feet. The 
ships are 646 feet long, 86 feet wide, 
carry a crew of 27 and are powered by 
20, 700-bp diesels producing an operat- 
ing speed of 21 knots. 

The ACL ships are equipped with 
an advanced electronic system that 
provides full directional control from 
the bridge. Exceptional maneuverabil- 
ity in port is made possible by a 1000- 
hp bowthruster that precisely steers 
the bow of the ship.

equipment, motors and other uncon- 
tainerized cargo below decks. On a con- 
ventional ship, a large unit, like a heli- 
copter, is carried on the weather deck 
where it must be protected from salt 
spray by an expensive cocoon of plastic 
strips. The wrap requires four men 
working three days. Recently a Sikor- 
sky helicopter destined for Holland was 
flown directly from the plant to the 
ACL terminal at Port Elizabeth, N.J. 
At dockside, the rotors were removed, 
the fuel drained, and the copter rolled 
below decks. When the Atlantic Song 
arrived in Rotterdam, the copter rolled 
off the ship, was fitted with rotors, 
fueled and flown to Amsterdam. 

In New York, where the RO RO 
ships dock at the Elizabeth -Port Au- 
thority Marine Terminal, the old 
method of pier construction was aban- 
doned in favor of a dockside that re- 
sembles an airfield. On the 54-acre site 
there are 20 acres — ablaze with light at 
night — where up to 1200 containers can 
be stored. There are 23 paved acres just 
for the storage of 3500 automobiles for 
import and export. An airfield-type 
control tower commands a view of the 
storage area and two berths, and con- 
trollers are in short-wave radio contact 
with eight straddle carriers. 

These huge vehicles (27 feet high) 
move 32 -ton containers between stor- 
age, customers' trucks and shipside 
cranes. They can stack 20-foot contain- 
ers three high. Two wheeled cranes, 
equipped with spreaders that telescope 
electrically to handle 20 or 40-foot con- 
tainers, ride the length of the berths. 

Behind the scenes is a computer that 
keeps tabs on all the complex opera- 
tions involved in the scheduling, rout- 
ing and billing of shipments, coordinat- 
ing the activities of port agents, inland 
offices and marine terminals. The sys-

provides instantaneous information on 
the location of cargo in any part of the 
country and the availability of space in

Survival 



an experiment into an 
unforgettable experience 
for PlVTs field testers 



ByE. P. HADDQN 




A WINTER WONDERLAND ob- 
served from a swiftly moving 
snowmobile can turn into a nightmare 
when viewed from a machine that has 
split its motor mounts. In hall an hour 
you have traveled farther into the wil- 
derness by snowmobile than you can 
hike in a day — if you can hike 
it at all. 

What to do? Abandon the 
machine and start out on your 
own? Risky — perhaps suicidal. 

As in boating mishaps, survival 
lies in slaying with your equip- 
ment. 

In really serious situations 
where warm clothing is lacking 
and night fast approaching, ihe 
polyurethane padding in some 
snowmobile upholstery can be 
ripped out to improvise mittens 
or clothing. In barren lands, the 
snowmobile itself can be used 



as a windbreak and its fuel to start a 
fire. But even a minimum of prepared- 
ness can save a snowmobiler a great 
deal of discomfort — not to say his life. 

First, fllioaj/s leave information with

Second, going into a winter wilder- 
ness is comparable to swimming in deep 
water. Be sure to travel in pairs. 

Third, a 12 by 12-foot brightly- 
colored tarp or plastic sheet costs little 
and weighs less. It can be used to make 
an improvised tent or serve as a pro- 
tective wrapping for a sleeping bag. 
Even a small bit of plastic stretched 
across a snowmobile will provide an 
emergency shelter. 

Finally, in addition to a routine 
motor repair kit, a snowmobiler should 
carry matches, flashlight and a knife- 
even for short little hops over the hill. 

But beyond these basic precautions, 
what can a snowmobiler do to protect 
himself from prolonged exposure? PM 
asked me to field-test some of the latest 
arctic clothing and to make suggestions 
for winter shelter. 

I enlarged PM's basic toolkit to in- 
clude a carpenter’s handsaw, a snow 
shovel (a smaller shovel for backpack- 
ers) , and snowshoes. Then I traveled to 
the Colorado Rockies with Gil Phillips, 
who has taught thousands of Boy 
Scouts to live comfortably in frigid 
weather. On the way, we experimented 
with emergency snow caves, a quick- 

NOVEMBER 1969 




POLY-FOAM FACE SHIELD and mittens serve to keep 
GM Phillips wariti even in the coldeit weather 



to- make shelter often used by the Eski- 
mos. For the site, we selected an ex- 
posed mountain pass at an elevation of 
more than 10,000 feet. 

After first shoveling off powdery sur- 
face snow, we found it easy to saw 
blocks of firm snow to form a wind- 
break around the working and sleep- 
ing area. After making two vertical 
cuts 6 to 8 inches deep the full length 
of the saw and 36 inches apart, the 
blade was used horizontally at floor 
level between the two vertical cuts to 
give the block a smooth base. Next, the 
blade was run across the backside of 
the block between the two vertical 
cuts. To break the block away after cut- 
ting, the blade was used to tilt it for- 
ward on a hand and arm. Then, with 
both arms around the block, one man 
carefully lifted it out of place. This pro- 
cess of quarrying was continued until a 
trench 8 to 10 feet long was attained. 

Working from within the excavation, 
we placed one block on edge at the rear 
of the trench. Butting against this, two 
more blocks were stood on edge at 
each side of the trench, then leaned in- 
ward to form a gable. For an improved 
gable, the top edges of the blocks were 
easily shaped with the saw. This simple

OUTSIDE IGLOO'S PERIMETER, snow blocks ore laken 
from a "quarry ' which will later become entrance 



process soon provided a surprisingly 
comfortable place in which to sleep, 
with adequate length for a sleeping bag 
and height for sitting headroom. 

Just as the snow cave was finished, a 
blizzard struck and the PM field test 
took on the dimensions of a real emer- 
gency. Phillips and I decided to build 
an igloo— the best shelter ever devised 
for survival in a frigid environment. 

Using a ski pole as a scribe, Phillips 
made a perfect 9 to 10-foot circle for 
the igloo’s perimeter; then scooped off 
surface snow to provide firm footing for 
the heavy blocks. About five feet in 
front of this foundation, snow blocks 
were sawed from the "quarry."' Blocks 
36 by 24 by 6 inches were lifted into 
place. These blocks were angled in to 
form the start of a spiral wall and dome. 

A temporary entrance was cut at the 
base of the wall for constructional pur- 




FIRST STEPS in making an igloo ate to scribe a large

EACH LAYTP OF BLOCKS leans increasingly inward. 
Saw is used to shape and fit blocks together 



poses. It was also used for throwing out 
snow during the finishing of the inte- 
rior. The man outside lifted successive 
blocks into place while the man inside 
used a saw to shape and fit them prop- 
erly. Each successive layer leaned in- 
ward a little more. The key or last 
block to be fitted topside locked the 
dome into a firm unit which could sup- 
port a man’s weight. Outside seams 
were then chocked with snow. 

When snow is shallow, a crawl-in 
doorway may be necessary, but our 
snow base of more than 13 feet per- 
mitted us to dig a 6-foot passage down 
from the quarry and up into the side of 
the finished igloo. With cold drafts 
eliminated, the igloo became even more 
secure as a haven during the storm. 

A standing area for the cook was dug 
just inside the igloo wall so that he 
could have his own kitchen space;

A single Coleman lantern cast a cozy 
light that reflected off the entire dome, 
and small pieces of wood were stuck 
into the wall to provide handy shelving. 

While working on the igloo I wore a 
pair of costly down mittens that quick- 
ly became saturated with moisture. 
When my hands became quite cold, I 
switched to a pair of poly-foam mittens. 
Sheathed in a tough nylon outer cov- 
ering, these mittens kept my hands 
warm even after snow was dumped in- 



side them? Though bulkier than down, 
the poly-foam pair weighed little and

E ach workday morning, so- 

y ear-old Avedis Zildjian and one 
or both of his sons drive up to a tiny 
red-brick plant at the end of a cinder 
road in Quincy, Mass. Once inside the 
building, they glance around to make 
sure no one is watching, then walk up 
to a heavy steel door marked “Posi- 
tively No Admittance.” 

Unlocked, the door swings open to 
reveal a 3 0-by-3 0-foot room filled with 
piles of tin and copper ingots, and 
sheets of silver. * >sing two small fur- 
naces, the Zildjians combine these in- 
gredients to produce, on an average 
day, 400 of what musicians generally 
consider to be the most melodious cym- 
bals in the world. 

The secrecy surrounding the manu- 
facture of such a relatively innocuous 
product is to protect the method used. 
It traces back to 1623, the year in which 
an Armenian alchemist discovered a 
means of treating certain alloys that 



produced cymbals of outstanding qual- 
ity. Since then, the secret has been 
handed down through generations to 
the oldest living male member of the 
family. In 1929 it came to Avedis Zil- 
djian. who was running a candy store 
in Quincy, when he received a mes- 
sage from an aged uncle in Rumania: 
“The secret of the cymbals is yours.” 

The hush-hush nature of the Zildjian 
operation is by no means unique. A 
number of successful businesses, in- 
cluding some of the world’s largest 
commercial empires, are based on sec- 
ret formulas or processes. The men who 
run these enterprises believe that, 
when it comes to protecting a trade 
secret, a padlock can be better than a 
patent. That is, it’s sometimes better to 
keep a secret than to patent it. 

Did you know, for example, that the 
fishhook you tie onto a line was made 
under security regulations rivaling 
those of many defense plants? The rea-

in a small N^w England plant. The method* dating

son is that, like the Zildjians’ cymbals, 
fishhooks are unprotected by patents. 
Instead, they’re safeguarded by the dif- 
ficult procedures necessary to correctly 
carry out such seemingly simple tasks 
as applying the barb, forming the point 
and shaping the eye of the hook. 

Companies such as Eagle Claw Fish- 
ing Tackle and the Pflueger Corp. de- 
sign and manufacture their own pro- 
duction machinery. The plans for the 
machines are kept locked, and no unau- 
thorized personnel are permitted to get 
a close look at the equipment itself. 

The assembly line at Avery Products 
Corp, in Los Angeles also is strictly off 
limits to prying eyes. The company 
manufactures a variety of self-adhesive 
labels and products ranging from price 
tags and address stickers to clock dials 
and adhesives used on ‘‘pasties” worn 



by burlesque strippers. Afraid to pa- 
tent the adhesive formulas upon which 
this $52-million-a-year business has 
been built — lest competitors find some 
way of duplicating them without in- 
fringing on a patent — R. Stanton Avery 
instead permits the carefully guarded 
company secrets to be revealed to only 
a few key employees. 

With an eye toward security, Avery 
Products Corp. even refused to reveal 
for this article information not about 
the formulas themselves but about the 
methods used to safeguard them. So, 
too, did Crane and Co. of Dalton, Mass., 
which makes much of the paper used 
in bank note production. The company 
uses a secret process for getting the

colored threads embedded into the paper. 

Probably the best-known efforts to 
safeguard company secrets — as well as 
to spy on competitors — occur in De- 
troit. With $l-bi|lion or so invested 
each year in tooling and design changes 
on new car models, the automakers un- 
derstandably run tight shops. Guards 
armed with binoculars, two-way radios 
and whistles patrol the rooftops of auto 
plants to watch for intruders. Some 
guards carry saws, which they use to 
threaten photographers discovered in 
trees overlooking test tracks. 

To confuse spies, companies prepare 
elaborate decoy models that are driven 
endlessly around tracks. Actual proto- 



. . . knowing what the 
other guy is doing 
is part of the game* 



types are often painted ink-black to 
limit depth perception in photography. 

Inside, wastebaskets in the styling 
section are equipped with electric pa- 
per shredders, and their contents are 
dumped in chutes that lead directly to 
furnaces. At some General Motors 
buildings the locks can be switched 
within an hour if a key is lost or stolen, 
and the company’s technical center has 
a listening device that automatically 
draws all the curtains at the sound of 
an approaching helicopter or airplane. 

If Detroit is sincere in its efforts to 
safeguard styling secrets, it also recog- 
nizes that, in a sense, knowing what the 
other guy is doing is part of the game. 
As retired Ford styling chief George 
Walker put it, “You need this kind of 
information so you know what not to 
do.” Only in this way, he explains, may 
companies avoid the embarrassment of 
too close duplication. 

Outside Detroit, some firms not only 
recognize efforts to steal their trade 
secrets as a way of life, but turn secrecy 
into a valuable advertising asset. Sever- 
al leading manufacturers of liqueurs 
and other beverages, for example, don't 
hide the fact that their products are 



derived from secret formulas. The se- 
cret for Drambuie liqueur is kept in the 
head of Mrs. Gena MacKinnon, the com- 
pany owner-manager, and under lock 
and key in a bank in Edinburgh, 
Scotland. Mrs. MacKinnon learned the 
herbal formula from her late husband 
on their honeymoon, but her daughter 
and son— the latter is president of the 
firm — won’t learn it until after their 
mother’s death. 

Advertisements for another liqueur, 
Chartreuse, and for Tribuno vermouth 
also make much of the fact that their 
recipes are known to only one person. 
In the case of Chartreuse, it’s a monk 
in the Carthusian order near Grenoble, 
France. The monks have guarded the 
formula for more than 400 years. Tri- 
bune ads picture John L. Tribuno 
himself and proclaim: "Only one 

man knows Tribuno’s secret — and he 
keeps it under his hat.” 

The formula for Angostura Aromatic 
Bitters, first made 45 years ago as an 
herbal remedy for stomach pains, is 
known to only three persons, including 
the great-grandson of the inventor. 
They take turns whipping up batches of 
the concoction to check on one another 
and ensure the accuracy of the prepa- 
ration. They also take pains never to 
travel together, to minimize the risk 
of simultaneous death. As an added 
precaution the company keeps a copy 
of the formula in a bank vault. 

The Coca-Cola Co. has built its enor-

the damage to your RV, Also, watch 
out for spots where gates can swing 
open and strike the coach. In a storm, 
a wildly- swinging gate can severely 
damage the aluminum skin. It’s easily 
punctured but hard to repair. 

The best parking-storage locations 
are in wind -protec ted spots, or under a 
carport or roof of some kind. Many 
owners prefer to cover their coaches 
with a tarpaulin. Aluminum does not 



rust but eventually it begins to pit and 
corrode. Once the finish is dulled by 
weather, it takes a cleaning with acid 
to bring back the gloss. 

Next, stabilize your RV properly. If 
the coach can be parked on a paved 
surface, that’s best. Otherwise, set 
wood blocks underneath the stabilizer 
jacks. All four corners of the coach 
should be stabilized so that wind- 
action won’t rock it about. Caution/ 
Some travel trailers have locations 
plainly labeled jack pads. Use stabilizer 
jacks only at those points. On any trail-

er, place stabilizer jacks under main 
frame members. Never place jacks un- 
der outboard struts or wooden channels. 

Now, pay attention to your tires. 
Much misinformation surrounds the 
proper storage of tires. Latest research 
indicates that wherever industrial air 
pollution (smog) is a problem, tires 
should be elevated oft the ground and 
deflated to 10 p.s.i, fieri son: Deflating 
l ires allows outer pores to close up. In* 
dating tires stretches the rubber and 
makes it more susceptible to damage. 
But remember, don't deflate tires that 
are carrying a heavy load. The best 
protection is to block up the axles with 




VACUUM AIL INTERIOR SCREENS before storage. 
Dust on screens collects moisture which encourages 
rust. Abo vacuum the cgbinels, closets and drawers 



wood or concrete piers, deflate tires to 
10 p.s.i., and cover tires with plywood 
or metal panels as protection against 
sunlight. This last step is extremely 
important in desert and Gulf Coast 
states, less critical in northern regions. 
Strong sunlight deteriorates tires rap- 
idly. 

Surest protection for tires during the 
winter is indoor storage. If you don’t 
plan to use your vehicle during the 
winter months, jack up the chassis and 
remove the tires, deflate them and store 
them in a shaded, well-ventilated area. 



With the RV anchored* you can 
tackle the interior. Coach interiors col- 
lect stale odors during idle storage. 
Causes can be traced to such things as 
leftover fish bait, a forgotten cheese 
sandwich in a hunting jacket, or a 
spilled puddle of gasoline under a leak- 
ing portable generator. These items are 
quite common, and just a tiny sampling 
of actual occurrences that bring a loud 
"Whew!” come spring. Look through- 
out the coach for leftover foods and 
beverages, opening all drawers, cabi- 
nets, storage bins, closets, and appli- 
ances. Something innocent as a cab*

ette seat. Remove that tor stain from 
the floor tiles by the front door. Food 
stains on the table, cushions or bedding 
will be three times harder to remove 
after winter storage.

even stainless steel can leave trace 
stains due to condensation of moisture 
inside a tightly closed coach. Vacuum 
all screens and the interior of all cabi- 
nets, closets and bins. Clean and wax 
the floor and all appliances. When 
you’re sure that the interior is clean 
and fresh -smelling, then’— and only 
then — start buttoning it up. 

Now, shut off the LP-gas supply at

handle clockwise until it has seated 
firmly. 

Enter the coach and be sure all ap- 
pliance controls are set to the off posi- 
tion. Remove range burners and vac- 
uum dust from the orifices. Replace 
burners and close the range cover to 
block dust. If the range Lacks a cover, 
wrap burners in aluminum foil to pre- 
vent rusting. 

Next, work on the plumbing. Be- 
cause it can freeze, the plumbing sys- 
tem is particularly vulnerable. To pre- 
vent ice damage or bad taste next 
spring, follow these instructions: 

1. Drain the water heater. 

2. Drain the water tank and flush it 
for at least 20 minutes with clean wa- 
ter. Close the drain valve. Add half a 
box of baking soda and five gallons of 
water and let it stand overnight. Then 
drain the tank and flush it one last 
time. This action neutralizes unpleas- 
ant odors or bad taste. 

3. Drain the sanitary holding tank, 
preferably at a service station outlet, 
Flush it thoroughly. Tighten the valve, 
and add a small amount of deodorant 
chemical to tank. Where necessary, use 
air pressure to rid the sink trap, show- 
er trap and internal plumbing lines of 
water. If overlooked, as frequently hap- 
pens, these areas may freeze and break, 
Flush the toilet several times to rid 
lines of water. 

4. Use a cup and sponge to drain the 
last bit out of the toilet commode. One 
coach manufacturer reports this item 
tops the list of frost-damaged hard- 
ware, 

5. Place a cupful of antifreeze in

then lower it all the way down. This 
tilts the frame enough to drain stub- 
born pockets of water. On truck

BOATING

I T’S THE ONLY PLACE ! know of in this country where the push of civiliza- 
tion not only has been stopped, but has been literally thrown back. 

You can drift the upper section of ihe Missouri River and find the country 
wilder now than it was 100 years ago. In those days steamboats struggled up* 
stream every summer bringing supplies and people lo outlying trading posts. A 
grounded steamboat was fair game for raiding Sioux, and boat captains were 
threatened, not only by Indians, but by their own crews and passengers. And just 
66 years earlier, Lewis and Clark, traveling the same river, mapped and opened 
this expansive country. 

But now we are taking a modern, jet-powered pleasure boat down 2( 10 miles 
of river. The reasons we picked the Missouri for a test run are; lots of shallow 
water for proving the jet. a route taking us through beautiful and historic country, 
and above all, a river any sensible boatman can run when the water's right. 

We re t raveling with a group of boating enthusiasts from Fort Benton and 
Glasgow, Mont., who take this t» ip every year. But we re not the only greenhorns. 
Some have trailcred boats from the Midwest, others from Southern California. 
The Glasgow * hamberof Commerce sponsors the run along with the Fort Benton 
Chamber. 

The boat w'e're using is a new 1 7-foot Glastron V-I74 V-hull rigged with a 
210-hp Aeromarinc engine which drives a Berkeley jet power package. It’s a red- 
hot boat, a great toy if you can afford about $5500 for a 17-footer, 

We leave Fort Benton at 1:00 p.m. on a Sunday, heading east toward the 
Fort Peck Reservoir, not tar south of Glasgow. 1 soon realize what were in for. 
Three of the 35 boats start banging outboard motor propellers before we’re

The bow lonk holds IB gallons, which lost for a day

The first night's camp is set up at

I find the bunks (lounge seats stretched 
out) are okay for sleeping. 

For the next few days we pass some 
of the most awesome territory you can 
imagine. True, it's not like running the 
Colorado or smashing upstream on the 
Snake. But taking it easy down the 
Missouri is my idea of a true vacation. 

The jet boat gives freedom from 
worry in rapids and near the shore. 
There are only two problems with the 
jet operation. One — you'll find yourself 
getting too close to shore and shallows 
because you don't really worry about 
water depth. Suddenly you’re aground, 




HOMEMADE BOATS ore no I uncommon on MiiioufL 
But Ibis paddle-driven craft grabbed our attention 







It’s then that you discover the other 
problem. The power of a water jet is 
amazing. But to call on that power in 
shallow water means that the pump 
will suck up every rock and piece of 
debris on the bottom. Result — damaged 
impellers and loss of power. You can 
get the power back by cleaning out the 
jet chamber. With all power off, you 
can uncap the jet unit, poke your hand 
down into the impellers and clean out

on and you have power again* The op- 
eration takes two minutes. It happens 
three times on the whole trip. 

The five days are unbelievable. Great 
blue heron pick up ahead of us and 
lumber into the sky. Bald eagles fly 
high about the great river. Fish break 
the surface at twilight. 

The trip is so planned that you can 
drift all day for several days without 
jeopardizing the timetable. And it’s 
drifting that makes any river trip. If 
you get tired of the scenery or become 
too hot, you can kick in your power 
and travel downstream for a few miles. 

At the end of one of these power 
stints we run across a party drifting 
downriver on rafts. There are a dozen 
people in four rafts. Floating right with 
them are two Canada geese — strange 
because these are wild geese and they 
have been with the group for two days. 

Farther downstream we pass good 
campsites that look as though they 
have never been used* There are sev- 
eral Bureau of Land Management sites, 
too. Any detailed geodetic survey map 
can give you tips on good campsites. 

Ahead are the rapids. At low water I 
imagine they can be tough on propeller 
boats, but now the water’s high and 
only a few deeper draft boats bang a 
prop. All the boats find a prop change 
necessary at least once during the trip. 

All who travel the river carry a lot 
of supplies. Gas of course, is all impor- 
tant* Although it's possible to get gas 
from a rancher along the river if there’s 
an emergency, it’s better to carry your 
own. We have 35 gallons extra in our 
boat. Loaded down and going slower 
than her planing level of about 2200 
rpm, the V-174 uses a lot of gas. But 
when the boat is empty and on plane, 
gas consumption is cut drastically, 
though water jets are not the most eco- 
nomical method of propulsion known 
to man. Many of the outboard boats did 
much, much better in the gas depart- 
ment, though they were not running a 
V8 210-hp monster. When the jet boat

W ITH THE HELP of my wife and our 1 5-year-old son, Kris, I built this 1457- 
square-foot home in 1969 for $7500. That may not seem possible, but we have 
our sales slips and cancelled checks as proof. We took advantage of a few discounts, 
but about 90 percent of the material was purchased at retail prices. 

We spent a lot of time shopping and looked for sales, but we did not buy as 
cheap as we could have. Neither did we trade at the top of the line. I 'or example, 
a 4x8 sheet of plasterboard, taped and painted, costs about $2. The same size panel 
in walnut or cherry plywood may cost $14 or $15. Since there are 43 panels on 
just the outside walls, those areas could have been done for either $86 or $645. 
Though it meant spending considerably more, we chose the plywood. 

There are many alternatives. We used hand-hewn beams in the living room that

an extra $100 for special windows in 
the living area; $25 more for the front 
door and $400 for airconditioning. In 
the bedrooms and kitchen we used 
acoustical ceilings which cost more than 
plasterboard. We used bi-fold louvered 
rather than less expensive flush doors 
on all of the closets. 



This house is a product of 30 years’ 
experience, incorporating all the good 
ideas and advice I’ve absorbed along 
the way. It will fit almost any location. 
If the alternate plan for the kitchen is 
used (see page 129’; , the house will fit

And, the house has about 90 square 
feet of closet space, plus access to the 
attic for additional crawlspace storage. 

Since the difference between cost 
and actual market value of the house is 
approximately $14,500, your wages are 
worth $22.50 per hour (based on my 
calculation that a skilled craftsman can 
erect it in 600 on-the-job hours) . 

We spent an additional 200 hours 
hauling material in a Vi -ton pickup 
truck (not included in my estimate). 
Doing it required many 28-mile round 
trips but saved trucking costs. And by 
going into the lumberyard frequently, 
we were able to save possibly another 
$100 by picking up unadvertised items 
that were on sale. 

EXTRA HELP. Depending upon your 
skills as mason, carpenter, plumber and 
electrician, it is wise to borrow enough 



money when you get your mortgage so 
you can hire help when you need it. 

It is my opinion that almost any 
mechanically -minded man can build a 
house with the materials available to- 
day. Plastic pipe, truss roofs, prehung 
doors, interior paneling and acoustical 
tiles— all are quite within the grasp of 
most men who have seen someone do it 
or can follow packaged instructions. 

Though I did most of the work my- 
self, 1 spent $106 for plumbing and 
electrical help. A local contractor asked 
me if he could bid the work and I told 
him I intended to try it myself. He then 
offered to help for $4 an hour. Actiu. Ily, 
I put in all the plastic plumbing drains

FRAMING. House framing is not too 
difficult for anyone with a little car- 
pentry or do-it-y ourself experience. 

All framing in this house is laid out 
on 16-inch centers which means there 
are 14% -inch spaces between studs. If 
the job is not within the scope of your 
experience, get professional help. Com- 
mon practice in my area is to frame for 
80 cents to $1 per square foot in labor. 
This means a carpenter crew would 
erect this house completely closed in,

installed, siding on, and roof shingled 
for less than $1450.

walls and roof. We needed it on the 
walls to hold the 1x12 cedar. While we 
were building, the cost of a 4x8 sheet 

jumped from $3.43 to $5.29 and later

ENTRANCE HALL has open f«eNng that from 

angling itae vvnMi af the utility and storage areas 

dropped back to $3.99. There are 116 
sheets in the house. We paid top dollar. 

INSULATION. For economy over 
the long pull, we installed 3 ^ -inch 
foil-face insulation in the walls. For 
this house, a heating and aircondition- 
ing expert suggested 6 -inch fiberglass 
in the ceiling: it does an excellent job. 
The house remains comfortably cool 
when the outside temperature is 85 l . 

CEILING, In the living-family area 
we used plasterboard and taped the 
joints with one coat of drywali cement. 
All nails were well set and covered 
with two coats. Finally, redwood beams 
covered the joints. We used a texture 
paint — a powder product mixed with 
water. After painting an area about 10 
or 12 square feet with a course white- 
wash brush, we went back over it with 
swirling strokes, going far enough each 
time to cover the center of the last swirl. 

In the master bedroom, den and 
bathrooms we used acoustical ceiling 
tile, following directions in the pack- 
age, In the other bedroom and kitchen 
we used a suspended ceiling with re- 
cessed lighting, which cost about twice 
as much as acoustical tile but is a cen- 
ter of attraction and adds a touch of 
luxury.

and west walls. Actually, this is an 
imitation stone called “splits,” It is a 
colored concrete block made with fine 
aggregate. Cast 4 inches high and 8 
inches wide, a block is either 16 or 24 
inches long. It is cast one day and split 
in a press after it has set for a few 
hours. This gives a finished block 
4x4x16 (or 4x4x24) inches long. 

These “splits” are made with that or 
other names all over the United States. 
Some manufacturers sell them out dur- 
ing the winter for half price because 
when they resume manufacturing such 
blocks again the following spring, the 
colors may not match those of the older 
blocks. We happened to catch the sale 
and saved here. 

ROUGH SAWN CEDAR. Nowadays, 
siding is quite popular for both interior 
and exterior applications. By rough- 
sawn board we mean a 1-inch plank 
planed on one side only, leaving the 
saw marks on the other side. Or it may 
be a 2-inch plank that has been 
planed two sides, then split on a band- 
saw to get a somewhat smoother sur-

face. There are also redwood and 
cedar plywood panels on the market 
with which you can get a board-and- 
batten effect. 

We debated between the two, then 
chose the boards at about half the cost 
— 22 cents per square feet against 40 
cents for plywood. But since boards 
must be lapped, we allowed 15 percent 
waste against a possible 5 percent on 
the plywood. 

Since we could not afford a “way- 
out” house, but still wanted our home 
different from those on the rest of the 
block, we decided to try 1x12 boards. 
12 in and 12 out, or in other words, a 
12-inch board (actually 11% inch) 
nailed on the wall, then five 10 V 2 -inch- 
long cleats nailed horizontally for 
spacers and support, then another 1x12 
nailed to the sheathing. A 1x12 is then 
nailed over the space between the two. 
The spacers and fillers held the top 
board rigid. We achieved a nice effect 
but made a serious error. The cedar, 
which shrinks and expands more th an 
most woods, drew water like a blotter. 



Our lx 12s shrank from 11% to 10% 
inches — a full inch. This left a crack 
alongside the outside board which meant 
we had to pull off several boards, glue 
and nail %-in. strips on the underboards, 
then replace the outside boards. Also 
the 1x12s had a tendency to expand be- 
tween the galvanized 8d nails which 
held them to the spacers and plywood 
wall sheathing. 

I would now recommend smaller di- 
mension boards: 1x8 or 1x10. With 
these your waste must be figured at 25 
to 30 percent, so your savings are less. 
Also remember that cedar erected ver- 
tically will expand and shrink in the 
weather, jamming windows in the wet 
season and pulling open during dry 
weather. Caulking does not help much 
and it also does not absorb stain. Be 
sure your cedar is dry and then stain 
or paint the siding at once. 

Borrowing money is by far the big- 
gest and most Important cost in build- 
ing or buying a home. I would place 
borrowed money in two classes: First,

I F YOU DRIVE an oil-burning old 
klunker, you don’t ask silly ques- 
tions like: 

“Is the oil I'm using the one best 
suited for my car?" 

"Am I wasting money by using the 
highest-priced oil?” 

“Which of the several different types 
of oil sold by my local gas station 
should I use?” 

You just buy the most oil for the 
least money and keep pouring it in. 

But if you own a new car or a good 
used one, you want an answer to the 
important question: Which oil? And 

134 



the answer is right on the can. All you 
have to do is know how to interpret the 
information for your individual re- 
quirements. 

The first question the information on 
the can should answer is: Does the oil 
meet the auto manufacturer’s warranty 
requirements? The power-train war- 
ranty on a new car specifies that if an 
internal engine failure occurs during 
the warranty period it will be repaired 
at no cost to you if you’ve provided the 
engine with maintenance required by 
the manufacturer. 

If your engine is under warranty,

you can be sure that an oil is suitable 
for your car if the can states that the 
product meets (or exceeds) carmakers’ 
warranty requirements or is of car- 
maker MS quality (MS is an industry 
classification referring to oils that meet 
severe operational service standards). 

The statement means that the oil 
meets automobile manufacturer speci- 
fications and can remain in the engine 
for the recommended period between 
oil changes. If the container bears no 
such statement, the oil does not meet 
stringent standards and should not be 
used. 



Following are several ways in which 
the statement is presented on oil cans: 

“Exceeds all car manufacturers’ stan- 
dards for MS service’ 1 (Citgo Extra 
Range) . 

“Exceeds all automotive manufac- 
turers’ requirements" (Super Shell ; .

merits of all car manufacturers” (Gulf- 
pride Single-G) , 

There is one thing to be cautious of 
if the statement makes reference to MS 
service requirements or tests. There 
are two kinds: automakers' MS and 
API (American Petroleum Institute) 
MS. They differ. 

Oil tested in accordance with API 
MS standards does not have to meet 
automaker MS requirements, which 
are designed to assure suitability of the 
product under the warranty. Thus, an 
oil container which bears reference to 
API MS service requirements without 
referring to carmaker tests or require- 
ments means that the product should 
be drained and changed every 60 days 
as recommended by the API. Only that 
oil which has carmaker appmval 
should be used in engines covered by 
warranty. 

In all likelihood you’ll come across 
two different cans of the same brand of 
oil that will differ in price by about 15 
cents per quart; yet both of them will 
carry the statement that the product 
meets automakers' requirements. 
What’s the difference? 

In some cases, one will have a multi- 
grade viscosity rating, such as SAE 

136 



10W-40, while the other will have a 
single grade rating, such as SAE 
20W/20 (The higher the SAE (Society 
of Automotive Engineers) number, the 
greater the viscosity or resistance of 
the oil to flow ) You’re paying the extra 
money for the variability afforded by 
the multigrade oil. 

In other cases, the SAE ratings of 
both will be the same, but one con- 
tainer will state that the oil exceeds 
carmaker requirements while the other 
will say that the oil meets carmaker 
requirements. That’s the difference 
which accounts for the price differen- 
tial. 

Both oils are suitable for use in your 
5 50,000 warranty-covered car, but the 
one that exceeds carmakers’ standards 
possesses additional detergents and dis- 
persants that afford your engine extra 
protection, especially desirable if you 
should exceed the recommended drain 
period. 

Detergents are chemical additives 
that keep (lie engine clean by prevent- 
ing deposit buildup. Dispersants are 
chemicals that keep sludge and carbon 
suspended in the oil in the form of 
small particles.

is for Service MS, the oil contains de- 
tergents. 

You may discover what appears to 
be contradicting statements on some 
cans of oil. The can will state that the 
oil meets (or exceeds) car manufac- 
turers' warranty requirements. Yet 
there will be another statement some- 
place else that says something like, “To 
help your car run better and last 
longer, drain and refill with (such and 
such oil) at least every 60 days.” 

What the oil company is telling you 
is that the oil can safely be used as rec- 
ommended by your car’s manufacturer. 
However, for even greater protection, 
change the oil more frequently. 

You should also examine the oil can 
for the type of operational service the 
oil is designed to meet — severe (MS: 
or moderate (MM) . MS and MM (ML, 
too: are classifications formulated by 
the American Petroleum Institute, M 
stands for Motor, The second letter 
stands for the type of service — S for 
severe, M for moderate and L for light. 

MS-designated oil contains the in- 
hibitors, detergents a nd dispersants 
needed to protect today's engines 
against the severe service they’re sub- 
jected to, specifically stop-go driving. 



short trips and long periods of idling. 

If a can carries the designation For 
Service MM, the oil is designed for 
moderate service which is defined as 
service that involves no stop-and-go, 
short-trip or long-idling operation. 
MM-designated oil contains little or no 
detergents and is less expensive than 
MS-designated oil. 

Since the early 1960s, automakers 
have recommended that only MS- 
designated oil be used in engines. How- 
ever, if your engine is no longer cov- 
ered by warranty and is burning oil, 
you might as well save money by using 
the less expensive MM oil until you de- 
cide whether to fix the engine or sell 
the car. 

As for oil designated ML, most places 
no longer sell it. It’s just straight min- 
eral motor oil. 

Along with the designation MS, 
you're likely to see the designations 
DS, DM and DG. These refer to the 
suitability of the oil to meet operational 
service requirements of diesel engines. 
DS stands for Diesel Service Severe, 
DM is for Diesel Service Moderate, and 
DG is for Diesel Service General (light 
service) . 

You may wonder what happened to 
the designations “regular,” “premium” 
and “heavy duty.” They formed the 
classification system adopted by the oil 
industry after World War II, but were 
superseded by the MS and MM system 
early in the 1956s. 

As mentioned, multiviscosity oil is 
more expensive than an equivalent sin- 
gle viscosity oil but is worth it. Sup- 
pose that the temperature in your area 
is now above freezing (32 J F.) and 
you’re using an SAE 20W -'20 oil. Sud- 
denly there’s a change and the tem- 
perature dips to below freezing and 
stays there. To assure that the oil flows 
properly inside your engine to provide 
maximum protection, you should drain 
the SAE 20W/20 oil and replace it with 
an SAE 10W oil. 

However, if the oil you use is an SAE 
IOW-30 or an SAE 10W-40, you don’t

How to Check Out Your 



If you know how f you can repair blown head gaskets or 
reed-valve failure with a minor teardown. For a ring 
job, the teardown will be total. Here’s how it’s done 



By HENRY B. NOTH ON 

T HERE ARE TWO WAYS to tear down 
a powerhead: minor and major. A 
minor disassembly allows you to repair 
such damage as a blown head gasket, a 
reed valve failure and carbon buildup in 
exhaust ports and around cylinder heads. 
It also lets you look inside the motor to see 
if a major tear-down is necessary. 

If there's an indication of damage that 
you can’t observe directly — such as worn 
main bearings or a bent connecting rod — 
you'll have to commit yourself to a major 
disassembly. 

A list of powerhead troubles and how 



they usually make themselves known is 
provided on page 143. However, a word of 
caution: Be sure that all other causes of 
a problem are investigated before you 
tear into the powerhead. Wouldn't you be 
red in the face to find out that the cause 
of an engine knock was advanced ignition 
timing and not the pistons you’re holding 
in your hand? 

An important question you will have to 
answer is whether to do a major disassem- 
bly yourself or to let a professional shop 
do it for you. There’s no doubt, that any 
competent reader can tear the engine

afterwards? 

Suppose, for example, that the cylinder 
walls show wear, requiring reboring to 
accommodate oversize pistons. Do you 
have the reboring tools necessary for this 
job? If not, would it be less expensive for 
you to let an outboard repair shop do the 
whole disassembly and repair job? 

Even if reboring isn’t necessary, the 
cylinder walls should be honed and new 
rings installed while the engine is stripped 
down. Do you have a cylinder wall honing 
tool? Do you have a ring expander? 
Would it be worthwhile to buy them? 

All two- cylinder outboard motors are 
disassembled in pretty much the same 
way. As you work, be sure to follow these 
basic guidelines: 

• Place parts with their respective fas-

ft As you perform disassembly, make 
notes and diagrams of the procedure so 
that reassembly will be simplified. 

• Be observant. Examine everything be- 
fore you take it off so you’ll know how it 
goes back on. For example, a piston has 
to be put back into the cylinder with the 
concave (intake) side of the deflector to- 
ward the intake port. 

ft Keep things clean. Replace worn parts, 
also all old gaskets and seals. 

To disassemble the powerhead you have 
to start by removing the powerhead from 
the rest of the outboard. Remove all ex- 
ternal engine parts: carburetor, flywheel, 
fuel pump, starter, magneto and so on. 

Now, remove the screws that attach the 
powerhead to the exhaust housing, and

cylinder wall damage, carbon accumula- 
tion, piston wear and scoring, and piston

The final task in performing a minor 
disassembly is to remove the intake - 
manifold cover, which reveals the reed 
valves (Photo 8). These components do 
the same job as intake valves on a car — 
they allow fuel to enter the combustion

replace all the leaves by simply unscrew- 
ing the leaf assembly from the leaf plate. 

If this is as far as you're going, careful- 
ly clean all parts and castings, especially

the engine has to come apart, detach the 
crankcase from the cylinder block to un- 
cover the crankshaft. Disconnect the con-

crankshaft and carefully remove the con-

of being bent, discard it. 

To check connecting rods, they 
should be disconnected from the piston. 
Make sure the piston pin that holds the 
rod to the piston provides a sound fit

ideal way of capturing events that require 
a variety of photos instead of just one big 
picture — scenes from a vacation trip, ani- 
mals at the zoo, the humorous antics of a 
baby learning to walk. 

Making a montage requires just enough 
artistic skill to be fun and a challenge. 
You can arrange your pictures in many 
ways. Sometimes a montage is built 
around one central, dominant photo. 
Sometimes the repetition of a single sub- 
ject shown in different poses or wearing 



different facial expressions can be effe- 
tive. Generally, the most interesting ar- 
rangements are a combination of both 
vertical and horizontal views. Group your 
subjects so they’re looking in toward the 
center rather than off the edges. 

A montage can be any size, but 16x20 
inches is a good choice- This is a standard 
mounting-board size, readily available at 
photo and artists’ shops. Use a white peb- 
ble board and leave a border of 1 to 1 x h 
inches around the edges. 

The prints are held to the board with 
dry -mounting tissue, also available at 
photo and artists’ shops. This is an ad- 
hesive sheet that’s slipped between the 
print and the board and then melted with 
an electric clothes iron to bond the two 
firmly together. First, tack the tissue tern-

In fitting your pictures together, make 
the lines between them deliberately ir-

To get neat seams between prints, cut the 
edge on one first, then use this as a tem-

of the adjacent picture. Do not, however, 
butt the edges tightly together. Leave a 
small gap — about Vsth of an inch— 'be-

735,000 volts make Hydro-Quebec’s 
power complex the highest voltage 
transmission system in the world 

By ROBERT DYMENT 

H YDRO-QUEBEC'S 735,000 -volt alter- 
nating -current transmission system 
is the highest -voltage commerical trans- 
mission system (either a.c, or d.c.) now 
operating anywhere in the world. 

Hydro- Quebec developed this system to 
transmit power from its remote Manic- 
Outardes hydroelectric complex to the load 
centers in Quebec City and Montreal, The 
same voltage level will be used in the fu- 
ture to transmit power from the huge 
Churchill Falls hydroelectric station being 
built in Labrador. 

The SI. 2 billion Manic-Outardes com- 
plex will ultimately consist of seven new 
power stations with a combined generat- 
ing capacity of 5.5 million kilowatts on the 
parallel Manicouagan and Outardes Riv- 
ers. Construction of this complex reached 
an important stage in 1968 with the com- 
pletion of Manic 5 dam (since renamed 
the Daniel Johnson Dam) which is the 
largest multiple-arch dam in the world 
and has created an 800-square-mile res- 
ervoir with twice the storage capacity of 
the next largest man-made reservoir on 
the North American continent. 

During the three years from the deci- 
sion to proceed with the 735-kv system to 
the actual placing -in -service, entirely 
new equipment had to be designed, fabri- 
cated and tested, the route had to be sur- 
veyed and cleared from Manic-Outardes 
to Montreal, and the line had to be 
erected, much of it through rugged coun- 
try, far from civilization and transporta- 
tion. 

Natural obstacles included four river 
crossings requiring the longest spans of

bundled conductor in the world. In the 
longest of these crossings, the line spans 
5875 feet between anchor towers on oppo- 
site banks of the Saguenay River near 
Tadoussac, where the cliffs rise 608 feet 
high on one side and 796 feet on the other. 

Hydro-Quebec emerged as a world 
leader in transmission technology, with an 
economical and highly successful trans- 
mission system that has inspired new im- 
petus in extra-voltage research and de- 
velopment around the world. 

When the 5,225,000- kilowatt Churchill 
Falls power station goes into operation, its 
power will not only be transmitted over 
735-kv lines, but these lines will be inte- 
grated with Hydro -Quebec’s existing 735- 
kv system. Hydro-Quebec, which has a 
financial interest in Churchill Falls, will 
buy virtually all of the power produced. 

Churchill Falls will be larger than any 
hydroelectric station in the world, and is 
the largest civil engineering project under 
construction in the Western Hemisphere. 
It lies 700 miles northeast of Montreal in a 
direct line. The first generating units at 
Churchill Falls will be commissioned in 
1971. When the station is completed, three

Don’t just check 
your tires for ob- 
vious damage or the 
amount of tread left. 
Read the pattern of 
tread wear for a sure 
indication of exactly 
what may be amiss in 
your auto’s front end 



By MORT SCHULTZ 



REMATURE and irregular wear of 
tire tread is the surest clue to trouble 
in your steering or suspension system. The 
wear pattern will even tell you if the 
trouble is a simple misalignment condition 
or a worn or loose pail:. 

Most of us know an underinflated tire 
shows maximum wear on the outside 
edges of the tread and little wear in the 
center, while overinflation causes heavy 
wear in the center of the tire as shown 
in Figs. 1 and 2, respectively. More com- 
plex wear patterns are also easily '‘read” 
and interpreted: toe wear, for example. 

Toe-in and toe-out refer to the differ- 
ence in measurements between the front 
of the front wheels and the rear of the 
front wheels. Correct toe alignment allows 
the front wheels to roll freely without 
any detrimental force acting upon the 
tires. If toe is not in alignment, front 
wheels work against each other to scuff 
tires and produce wear. 

There are two kinds of toe wear: con- 
stant and intermittent. Constant toe wear 
is caused by an. improper toe-alignment 
setting and is corrected when alignment 
is readjusted to specification. 



Intermittent toe wear occurs when a 
front-end part is damaged and causes toe 
adjustment to bounce alternately out of 
and into proper setting. Putting the car 
on a front-end alignment machine won't 
tell you if an intermittent toe-wear 
problem exists, because the vehicle is at 
a standstill and under a fixed load. 
Intermittent wear occurs when the car is 
being driven and the load varies. 

Thus, the only sure way to know if you 
have an intermittent toe-wear problem is 
to read the tire. Look for scuffing of 
several of the tread ribs in the center of 
the tire. The outside edges of the tire will 
show little or no w r ear (Fig. 3). 

By comparison, if you have a constant 
toe-in or toe-out problem, all tread ribs 
(not just some) will show wear (Fig. 4). 
If the condition is toe-in, the outside 
edges of the ribs will show wear while 
the inside edges w T ill have a sharp, ragged 
pattern. If the condition is toe-out, the 
same pattern will be formed, but in re- 
verse. 

Steering and suspension problems that 
create an intermittent toe- wear condition 
are sagged springs, worn or loose ball

STEERING IDLER ARM (arrow} can be tested 
for ploy by iwisling it and adjacent rods 



joints, worn or loose tie-rod ends, loose idler- 
arm bushings, loose bushings on the upper and 
lower control arms, and bent spindle supports or 
steering arms. 

Camber wear is another problem that can be 
read on your tires. Camber refers to the inward 
or outward tilt of a wheel, and is the angle made 
by the center line of the wheel and true vertical* 
The inward tilt of a wheel is called negative 
camber, and the outward tilt is known as positive 
camber. 

As with toe wear, there are two types of 
camber wear: constant and intermittent. Constant 
camber wear (Fig. 5), as with constant toe wear, 
results from improper alignment and is alleviated 
when camber is set to manufacturer’s specifications. 
You’ll know when too much constant positive 
camber is a problem if the outside edge of the tire 
tread shows accelerated wear. Excessive negative 
camber is demonstrated by excessive wear to the 
inside edge. 

Intermittent camber wear results from a bad 
part in the front end. Keep in mind that almost 
every steering or suspension paid that is suffi- 
ciently damaged to cause intermittent camber 
wear will also produce some degree of intermittent 
toe wear. 

If the wear on the tire is caused predominately 
by a change in camber, then tire wear will be 
uneven or spotty and the worn spots will be 
"knotty" in appearance and show up more toward 
the side (Fig, 6), Those conditions which cause 
intermittent changes in camber are worn ball 
joints, worn bushings on the upper and lower 
control arms, a bent spindle support, and sagged 
springs. 

The shorter radius followed by your inside 
wheel than the outside wheel in a turn is ob- 
tained by introducing a toe-change that varies 
in proportion to the degree of the turn. Were it 
not for this deliberately calculated toe change, the 
front wheels would scuff badly* 

Wear produced by incorrect turning radius 
usually appears as normal tread wear except that 
the tires wear more than normal for the distance 
traveled. Wear is often heavier at the tread 
edges, and the tires will squeal on turns— even 
at slow speed. 

The two problems which affect turning radius 
most often are worn tie- rod ends and loose idler- 
arm bushings. Other problems that can lead to 
the condition are worn ball joints, worn control - 
arm bushings and a bent steering aim. 

The tire -wear pattern becomes complicated 
when a combination of the aforementioned front- 
end problems occurs. When tire wear of the types 
illustrated in Fig, 7 to 9 appear, you must look 
for damaged parts in the suspension and steering.

Checking for ball -joint looseness is a

are usually spoken of in the same breath 
as ball joints* When they re worn they'll 
demonstrate some play. Even more of an 
indication of a damaged control arm, 
though, is one which appears twisted. 

To check for sagged springs, make 
height measurements from the rocker 
panels or fender wells to the ground. 

Improper wheel balance can ruin tires 
as Quickly as any of the conditions we’ve 
discussed so far. There are two kinds of 
wheel imbalance: static and dynamic. 

Static imbalance causes a car to vibrate 
vertically. One or more areas of the tire 
are forced heavily against the pavement 
with each revolution of the wheel. Dy- 
namic imbalance causes horizontal vi- 
bration. The wheel oscillates, and a scuffing 
condition is created that soon produces 
flat spots in the tire. 

With static balancing, a weight equal 
to the heavy spot on the wheel is placed 
opposite that spot. In the case of dynamic 
balance, a weight equal in mass to that 
on the outside of the wheel is placed at 
the same point on the inside of the wheel. 

Other forces that contribute to poor 
front-end characteristics are bad shock 
absorbers, loose front-wheel hearings and 
dragging or unequally acting brakes. To 
assure perfect stability and long tire life, 
check these, too. * * *

OST SMALL RADIOS have more in

the tiny antenna built into such sets isn't

what antenna? Which type for what broad-

at a radio shop. 

Use stranded 18 -gauge copper 
wire for the half-waves. Wires 
can be strung around a room, 
hung out a window or attached 
to a tree for temporary use. The 
control is designed mainly for 
portable operation, not permanent

thusiast. 

A second rotary switch makes 
the antenna selector an even more 
versatile control center for short- 
wave listening. This is connected 
to the radio’ s remote -speaker jack 
and lets you feed the sound to a 
tape recorder, earphone jack or 
hi-fi speaker. For taping short* 
wave broadcasts off the air, a 
monitor speaker is wired in paral- 
lel with the recorder. This way, 
you can hear what you're record- 
ing over the monitor. 

The optional 220K resistor is 
needed only if you feed the signal 
into your tape recorder’s mike in- 
put, If your recorder has a high- 
level input in addition to the mike jack, 
you can use it and omit the resistor. For 
earphone listening, there’s a separate 
switch position that incorporates a trans- 
former for proper impedance match. This 
is a 2QK 600 -ohm plate-to-line transform-

loss, a coaxial UHF plug and jack are used 
for the connection from the control box to

Police tell us that the rate will be even 
higher this year. 

Happily, you can do something to pro- 
tect your family and property. Properly 
installed, a burglar-alarm system will 
warn you of a break-in, and. in many 
cases, scare off the burglar.

versary is the slick professional thief who 
spends days or weeks ‘'casing the job” be- 
fore making his move. An alarm system 
that will stop this pro has to be sophisti- 
cated and expensive. 

A proximity device would be the best 
bet for our rich friend. It sounds off when 
someone approaches to within 2 feet of an 
object such as a safe. Closed-circuit TV is 
another solution. Whatever the device, an 
expensive system is usually connected di- 
rectly to police headquarters or to a cen- 
tral control station where a private inves- 
tigator or guard is on duty. 

But, most of us don't have to worry 
about the professional burglar. Our en-

be adequate for the job you have in mind, 

Even a homemade system is often ef- 
fective since the one thing? a prowler does 
not want is attention. Beils attached to 
doors and windows, which clang loudly 
when disturbed, will make him quickly 
leave the scene. 

Commercial alarms 

One of the most effective systems to 
guard against a break-in through doors 
and windows is the perimeter alarm. 
Literally, the house is encircled with an 
electric barrier. Contact (magnetic) 
switches attached to doors and windows 
are wired in series and connected into a 
control box that has a switch which turns 
the system on and off. When a window or 
door is forced, contact is broken, resulting 
in a resounding wail. 

Once a perimeter alarm is tripped and 
contact Is broken, it cannot be turned off 
by closing the door or window. It has to 
be done at the locked control box. This 



feature applies to all commercial alarms. 

In selecting a system, look for one that 
operates on both a,c, and battery pack. 
The batteries automatically take over the 
function if house current fails or is inten- 
noiitrfli/ disrupted. 

If you install it yourself, a perimeter- 
alarm system will cost about S100 for the 
control box and $4 for each contact set, 
One contact set is needed per window and 
door. Double-hung windows, however, re- 
quire two, one for the lower sash and one 
for the upper. 

Since every opening in the house does 
not have to be fitted with a contact, you 
can cut costs by prudently planning your 
installation. For example, in an upper- 
story apartment the entrance door(s) on- 
ly would require them. Or, in a several- 
story house, the only installations upstairs 
would be on doors and windows that lead 
to a deck or balcony. 

Another type of intrusion alarm is the 
ultrasonic motion detector. One version Ls

a box that contains several transducers, 
a receiver and an alarm signal. It’s a low- 
voltage device that is plugged into a wall 
outlet that also has a battery backup. 

Motion detectors are excellent for 
guarding one room or a specific area. For 
example, some people use them to over- 
lap the protection provided by a perimeter 
system. Thieves who are alarm conscious 
disregard windows and doors and look for 
another entrance — like cutting a hole in 
the roof to enter the attic. A motion de- 
tector in the attic will sound the alarm. 

The transducers flood a room or area 
with ultrasonic sound waves in the fre- 
quency of 19.2 kc, which is just outside 
the audible range of the human ear. Any 
motion in the loom interferes with the 
sound wave pattern, upsets the balance in 
the receiver and sets off the alarm. 

A motion detector, capable of guard- 
ing an area that is 10 x 15 x 15 ft. costs 
about $200. One drawback with this type 
detector is that false alarms can be a prob- 
lem. To illustrate, a detector set up to 
protect a room at night will let go a blast 
if disturbed by someone getting up for a 
drink of water. 

A third type of intrusion device is a 
photoelectric receiver and sender. Like a 
motion detector, its value is in protecting

tra J box ([eft} contains signal and battery; [t fea- 
tures a three-way switch— off, exit and n!ght r The 
"speaker 1 "* obove is actually a motion detector alarm 

a single room or specific area. Outfitting 
an entire house with photoelectric or 
motion detection devices is far more ex- 
pensive than installing a perimeter system 
but no more effective. 

The lamp of a photoelecti ic system pro- 
jects an invisible infrared beam of light to 
the receiver. When an intruder interrupts 
the beam, the circuit is broken and the 
alarm sounds. Photoelectric burglar 
alarms cost from $130 to $230, depend- 
ing upon their range of coverage. 

Finally, there’s the family of single- 
station intrusion alarms that are me- 
chanical or electromechanical in function. 
They are designed to guard a specific door 
or window. They incorporate in one box 
the means of activating the alarm, and the 
alarm signal itself. 

Single-station alarms are priced from as 
little as $1.50 to about $25. But, it’s not 
economical to outfit every door and win- 
dow with them. Single- station alarms are 
intended to protect one or two openings. 
Some in the lower price ranges have 
signals which are too soft to awaken a 
sound sleeper. Before you buy one of 
these, test its signal. Since single-station 
alarms are usually battery-operated, re- 
member to check batteries regularly. 

Unlike fire-alarm systems, home bur- 
glar alarms are not tested by the Under- 
writer's Laboratories or any other inde- 
pendent testing agency. However, systems 
made for industry are. And, you can often 
buy components for your home system 
which are made by the manufacturers of 
these commercial systems. You can get a 
list of these manufacturers by writing to

Assn., East Orange, N.J. + * *

1/4" fender washer 



HERE’S AN ICE-SKATING RINK that 
keeps its cool even when the temperature 
climbs above freezing. The secret is the 
thickness of the block of ice. 

Made of spruce, the rink is assembled 
with bolts; thus, it can be disassembled, 
stored away and reused for years. For 
long sides where boards are butted end-to- 
end, battens are used to overlap joints 
on the outside of the rink. To retain the 
take-apart feature, the battens are nailed 
and glued to one board only. Bolts, nuts 
and washers are used on the other board. 

After determining the size of your rink, 
nail and glue the 2x2 stakes to 
the end (width-of-rink) 
boards. Then drill three 
V4-in. holes in each 
stake to receive the 
bolts that will 



hold the sides. After the rink is bolted to- 
gether, drive the 1x2 stakes spaced about 
8 ft. apart. Nail the boards to the stakes 
and then tap the stakes down slightly to 
pull the boards tight to the ground. 

The flooding operations can be started 
after the temperature drops below freez- 
ing. By using an oscillating sprinkler 
rather than a garden hose, water is dis- 
tributed over a large area. Using this 
method the water freezes quickly and 
saves buying polyethylene, as is the usual 
practice for backyard icc- skating rinks.

How to Tile a Ceiling 



A RE YOU THINKING of tiling your 
. basement ceiling? Fine, but if it’s 
your first tiling job, there‘s a right way to 
begin to assure a first-class job. 

Before applying the tile it is important, 
as pointed out by Boise -Cascade, to make 
a layout of the ceiling. This is done by 
drawing the ceiling to scale, showing the 
locations of light fixtures, heat registers, 
ducts, pipes and any other features that 
should be considered, The widths of the 
border rows of tile should then be deter- 
mined and the tile joint locations shown 
on the drawing. It is generally good prac- 
tice to make the layout so that the border 
rows come out a half-tile or wider as this 



contributes to both good appearance and 
economy of material. 

The tile can be applied directly to a 
continuous nailing base such as an exist- 
ing dry wall ceiling. For open joists, or to 
cover old plaster ceilings, install 1x3 soft- 
wood furring strips at right angles to the 
joists. Fasten the strips by nailing into the 
joists. Place the furring on 12 or 16-in, 
centers at ceiling-tile joint locations to 
suit the size tile being used. 

Begin application of the tile in a corner 
and work along the wall on a line parallel 
to the center line of the room. It is essen- 
tial that this first row of tile be laid along 
a chalkline or straightedge as this will

A clean paint -roller tray makes an 
ideal tool and small- parts holder when 
you make repairs on vehicles or farm 
machinery. In use, the holder saves 
searching in the grass for dropped parts* 
It also avoids the possibility of inadver-

Clinch nails in a jiffy 

The proper way to clinch a nail is to 
bend the spiked end 180 J (U-shaped), 
then drive the point into the wood. A 
doorknob with a square shaft makes a 
handy tool for this chore. Simply insert 
the nail point into one of the holes, twist 
the nail over and finish the bending with 
a hammer. Be sure the setscrew is well 
tightened in the knob to avoid stripping 
the threads on the spindle. — Daniel Bouska

Make This Handsome Chess 

Here's a chess set you can build that is fit for a king, queen, even a pawn. 
It easily copped first prize at the Michigan Industrial Education State Fair 



T HOUGH its exact origin is unknown. 

a generally accepted theory is that 
chess was imported to Europe from the 
Orient more than 1500 years ago. The 
game as we know it today, except for 
minor changes, is at least 600 years old. 

While the shapes and sizes of the chess- 
men may vary, the checkered playing 
board is standardized around the world 
and consists of 64 squares — 32 light col- 
ored and 32 dark. In our version, the 
board is of *>' 2 - in. plywood and the 
squares are made by tilting the table saw 
blade to 45" and running shallow V- 
grooves at right angles. 

The contemporary chessman are ma- 
chined on a metal lathe. One set is of 
brass while the other is of aluminum. 
Other combinations of metal could be 
used or, both sets could be aluminum 
with one set being anodized. To protect 
them when not in use, they are snugly 
stored in rattleproof drawers lined with 
Styrofoam. 



Making the chessmen: Start by cutting 
the stock to length — allowing two chess- 
men to each length — except for the kings 
and queens. Cut a chessman out on one 
end of the stock, then reverss the stock 
end for end and turn the second chess- 
man. Dimensions for all the chessmen are 
given below: use standard metal -lathe 
practice to cut them. The stylized king's 
crown is made using a jeweler's file, Care- 
fully file the notches about Viii in. wide 
and Vni in. deep. 

Finishing the chessmen; After each 
piece has been turned, leave it mounted 
and polish it dry with 240-grit emery 
cloth, then with oil. Next use 320 grit, 
also dry and then with oil. Use lacquer 
thinner and tissue paper to clean the piece 
while it is still on the lathe. Once each of 
the pieces has been cleaned make certain 
that they are not touched with the 
fingers. 

Heat the piece with a torch until just 
warm — don’t overheat Then apply three

S HOPPING THE YELLOW PAGES 
becomes a regular habit when the 
book is kept handy, but because of its size 
and beat-up appearance, it is usually 
chucked away out of sight and not always 
handy to the phone. Tracking it down be- 
comes a chore every time you want to use 
it. Consequently, it’s not your fingers 
that do the walking. 

That’s the way it used to be. Now, 
thanks to Gary Gerber, noted New York

and the white pages of big-city directories 
have been made as handy to the home 
phone as the ones in a phone booth. His 
two clever tables shown here have built- 
in wells where the directories can be 
parked within easy reach, yet out of sight. 

In the table shown at the left, which is 
designed for one book, the directory 
swings up from a center well. In the table

books, the directories lift out of wells 
along one side. In each case, the books are 
attached to wood backs in a manner 
which permits them to open flat for use on 
top of the tables. 

Plans for building the two -directory 
table shown below are given on page 172. 
Of the two, this one is the simplest to 
build. In each case plywood is used 
throughout and the kind you use depends 
on the finish you want and what you w'ant 
to spend. You can pick hard wood -faced 
plywood and cover the edges with wood 
tape, or you can do as we did and use fir 
plywood and cover it (edges and all) with 
decorative plastic laminate. Of the two, it 
may be somewhat more expensive (al- 
though hardwood -faced plywood isn’t 
cheap) but you can’t match it for wear 
and there’s no staining or varnishing. Once 
the table is covered, it's finished and ready. 

Except for the opening in the front, both

front and back panels of the table are 
twins. Likewise the two sides and inner 
panels are identical. The flush-fitting lop 
and lift-out panels rest on *4-in.-sq, cleats. 
Front and back dadoes are plugged at the 
top before edge-banding with laminate. 

To build the single- directory table de- 
tailed on the opposite page you start with 
a 21 14 -in. -sq,. base (E) and run two 
dadoes in it, front to back, 3 J 4 in. apart. 
Parts (D) which are identical, sit in these 
dadoes. Part (F) fits rear rabbets and 
closes the center well at the back. A 3Vs- 
in.-sq. piece fits between at the front It 
will be easier to cut the mortises in parts 
(D) for the knife hinges if it*s done before 
the panels are glued in the dadoes. Notice 
that the small upturned stop, which is on 
each hinge when you gel it, is filed off. 

The rabbeted edges of parts (B) are 
glued and nailed to the top edges of parts 



(D) and then part (A), which is cut % in. 
shorter to accommodate part i C) , is glued 
between parts (D) level with parts iB), 

Allowing for the thickness of the lami- 
nate (lit: in.) f part (C) is cut to fit the 
center well and mortises are made for the 
hinges after the board is covered. A mag- 
netic catch may be added to hold the 
panel shut. If you like the table as well 
without the 2-in, base, you can leave it off 
but add the 2 in. to the length of parts D. 

How to apply laminate 

If you are new at working with decora- 
tive laminate, the one thing to remember 
is that once the cement-coated material is 
placed on the cement-coated surface, you 
can's shift it. You must have it just where 
you want it the first time.

PART n 

Last month you built the basic housing. 
Now you can try your hand at some 
fine Old World craftsmanship. 

By W, CLYDE LAMMEY 

W ITH THE BASIC HOUSING built, you arc 
now ready to start on the decorative orna- 
mentation. Happily, construction is a lot easier 
than appearance indicates. 

Since there are several checks you should make 
before you cut the parts for the hood, you should 
have the dial and clock movement on hand. 

First make a test stand. Cut a piece of %-in. 
plywood about 16 in. wide and 48 in. long. Fasten 
two pieces of plywood about 46 in. long and 6 in. 
wide to it at right angles. (Space the strips the 
same distance apart as the sides of the waist you 
have made.) Add a base so that the assembly will 
stand firmly when upright. Next, make the move- 
ment seat and chime-rod support After assem- 
bling the two parts, screw the movement and 
chime assembly in place. Position it on the im- 
provised test stand and add pendulum weights 
and dial. 

With the movement in place, note the position 
and dimensions of parts A, B and C. Here, refer- 
ence is made especially to the radii which deter- 
mine the arch of these parts. Arched dials are 
generally held to close limits, but there could he 
some slight variations. CAUTION: Don J t take the 
dimensions given on the drawings literally. Don’t 
cut stock until you’ve made sure parts cut to these 
dimensions will accept your dial correctly. Check 
the radius of your dial arch to make doubly sure. 
This applies not only to the radii of parts A, B and 
C (the pediment has the same arch as part C) but 
also determines the radius of the arched door. 

With all dimensions carefully checked, you can 
start making the hood parts. Begin with the top 
waist frame. Again, all miter joints are splined. 
The sides of the hood drop into the dadoes in the 
frame and are fastened with screws driven from 
the underside. It’s a good idea to omit cutting the 
grooves for the closure strips at this stage. It’s fas 
more accurate if done when the pediment is as- 
sembled; you can check location and width of the 
strips at one time. When cutting the curved parts, 
allow a little extra so you can sand -finish the 
rough-sawn edges. Chances are, you will also have 
to sand the outer edges of the dial stop (part A)

so it will slip easily into its mating grooves. 

The location of the movement support 
strips will normally be about 2^2 in., mea- 
sured from the top of the frame to the 
bottom face of the movement seat. Elon- 
gate the screw holes to provide an up- 
and-down adjustment of about 3 s in. 

Select vour best stock for the pediment 
front. Miter and join it to the pediment 
sides with special care. Notice that the 
pediment half pattern shows a center- 
ornament seat of %-in. thickness. If you 
use an ornament with a 2 -in. ball and

and reassemble with glue in all joints. 
(Note: No glue is used in the grooves

Next, stand the case on a level surface 
and slide the movement into place. Check

PEDIMENT MOLDINGS of H-in. stock are (1) cut using a bandsaw, (2) shaped with cove bit chucked 
in the router, and (3) separated from stock. The curve is reversed to make other half of the pediment 



justing the movement supports up or down 
as required. You should see all the curved 
lines on the moon arch inside the arched 
portion of the stop and there should be 
about Yi w to Va in, between the outer 
edges of the spandrels and the stop at 
the sides; a little more at top and bottom. 

This done, remove the movement (han- 
dle it carefully) and disassemble joints of 
the base which were assembled dry'. Next, 
apply glue and reassemble permanently. 

The hood and waist door frames require 
careful workmanship. The arched door 
is a bit tricky since rabbets are cut on 
both inner and outer edges; one to take 
the glass, the other to form a lip. If you 
have a router, buy a Vii-m. rabbeting bit. 
With this equipment, the job takes min- 
utes. Otherwise, drill a row of adjacent 
Vs or holes around the inner and 

outer edges of the arch and then chip out 
the waste with a sharp, narrow chisel. 
Rabbets on the straight parts can be run 
easily on the table saw. 

The arched door 

The four corner joints are splined miters, 
but the two members of the arch are 
joined with a dowel. The hinges for the 
arched door are of necessity something

special. Both are of flat brass, but the up- 
per hinge is offset. Though not common in 
old clocks, an offset hinge was used here 
to give the door arch a more symmetrical 
appearance when closed. After assembling 
and placing the door, the hinges may need 
light filing to obtain clearance for smooth 
opening and closing of the door. 

The lower rail on the waist door is 
spline -mitered to the stiles but the upper 
arched rail is dowel-joined. Just how 
you make this joint depends on whether 
the corners are rounded or molded. With 
a router and a %-in. bead cutter bit, you 
can run the molding all the way to the 
upper ends of the stiles, then turn the rail 
on end and cut a saw kerf the depth of the 
molding on both ends. To form the cope, 
undercut with a round file (or carver's 
gouge) to fit the rail's molded shape. 

Since it is easier to do, and a straight- 
cut piece of glass costs less than a curved 
piece, rabbet the top rail % x 3-in. to 
receive a rectangular piece of glass.

The pediment molding, which has the 
same contour as the pediment risers (cor- 
rectly called s wan f necks), is quickly cut

How to Make 
Your Own 
Antique 



D URING a RECENT house redecorat- 
ing session, my wife decided that 
what we needed to complement our co- 
lonial decor was a beamed ceiling. Though 
1 was aware of the new foam-type beams 
that are good reproductions, I decided 
that I would carve out my own. 

To make them, I used rough-sawn, 
nondimensioned stock measuring about 
4x6 in. that I obtained at no cost. Actual- 



ly, the beams shown were flatcar dunnage 
(pine) salvaged from a railroad siding. 
The railroad people were happy to have 
me haul the timbers away. If you have no 
local railroad freight yard, you can sub- 
stitute dimensioned lumber. 

Make your own adz. Though the adz is 
a tool that has been in use for centuries — 
it was the only known method of dressing 
lumber — it is not easy to come by these

hatchet and a spoon chisel. None gave 
satisfactory results or the look that I 
wanted. The obvious answer was to make 
my own adz.

die a timber that is securely held by 
workstops on the floor. Use short, well- 
aimed strokes down and towards you in 
the curvature of the blade. Your arms 
and the handle act as the radius. The 
blade is worked across the width of the 
beam stroke by stroke, removing several 
inches of stock in length and width with 
each chop. 

This is tricky. An angled stroke, or a 
hard chop that strikes a knot, can glance 
off and give a painful and serious cut in 
the shin. To avoid this, many pros work- 
ing at a fast pace stand in wooden nail 
kegs to protect their legs. Your safest bet 
is to work slowly, always making certain 
that the cutting edge strikes icidi the 
grain on each stroke. When working over 
a knot, use much shorter strokes or a 
chisel. 

Having a shorter handle than an adz, 
the mattock-adz shown on page 182 is 
best handled by elevating the workpiece 
and following the safety rules mentioned 
above. Do one side from end to end, then 
rotate the timber 90 and do the next side. 
Always work with the grain; cutting 
against it leaves deep* ugly gashes. Your 
first efforts may result in cutting sharp, 
jagged splinters. These can be removed 
with a hand chisel. You will find that as 
your skill increases, you will cut fewer 
jagged edges, and finally, none. 

Installing the beams. Since the room 
where I planned to beam the ceiling had a 
wide entry, I ran a wide beam across the 
opening. The long-spanning beams (ac- 
tually joists in old construction) are at

right angles to the heavy beam. They 
simply butt the walls at one end and are 
let into notches cut in the heavy beam at 
the other. The notches are cut extra deep 
so that the beam can slide in as you 
swing the far end up, thus letting the 
beam clear the wall. 

Installation goes a lot faster if you have 
some help hefting the beams into position. 
And s it’s worth the time it takes to build a 
T-support t which, with several wedges 
and a helper, make installation compara- 
tively easy. 

Predrill and counterbore all beams for 
lagserews and bolts while still In the 
workshop. Then lay out beam locations 
on the ceiling with ruler and chalkline. 
When a beam is positioned and wedged 
firmly in place, drill pilot holes into the 
joists to receive the lagserews. After the 
beam is securely fastened, the shimmed 
T-support can be removed safely. 

For extra support, I bolted knees to 
wall studs beneath each end of the heavy 
beam. About 18 in, long, the ones shown 
were found — as is — alongside the dun- 
nage beams in the railroad yard. They 
had been discarded after serving as 
chocks under a large cast-iron boiler 
brought in on a flat car. 

The beams shown were finished with 
walnut stain and two coats of semigloss 
varnish. This part of the job goes a lot 
faster if you do the staining and first var- 
nish coat before the beams are in place. 
Then, it’s a simple matter to touch up the 
few spots that might get bruised during 
installation and apply the second coat of 
varnish. ★ * ★

A WELCOME ADDITION to any met-

because of the cost. Happily, you can 
treat yourself to this luxury for less than 
$20 by using the gearbox from a dis-

Though any make of washer having a 
back-and-forth impeller movement can be

The gearbox has built-in gear reduction, 
existing lugs for attaching a motor mount

had to be shortened about 8 in. 

If you slip a 16-pitch, 60-tooth gear over 
this 34 -in. shaft and drive the 7-in. pull ey 
with a 34-hp, 1725-rpm motor rigged with 
a 2-in. pulley, you get just about perfect 
cutting speed — 72 strokes per minute. 
Stroke length is about 634 in, 

Of cold-rolled stock, the saw frame is 
made simply by heating and bending it, 
using a wood template. Slots to cradle 
the blade are handsawed with a hacksaw. 
They’re cut to accommodate the 12-in. 
power-hacksaw blades that arc sold by 
Sears. 

Since the saw operates smoother if the 
flat surface contacting the saw 1 guides is 
long, use a straightedge along the top of 
the frame after bending. Place the blade 
so it will operate as a drag saw. 

Make a trial-and- error wood base for

you can then determine the measure-

To make the saddle, saw out a half- 
round section under the saw guide. This 
allows the saw to swing down far enough 
to finish the cut. Fit this part with a suit- 
able handle for turning to up and down 
positions. Since the saw operates when 
the saddle is in any position, there is no 
need for an extra switch to stop the saw 
automatically after the cut. 

The part salvaged from the washing 
machine (see drawing) is slipped over the 
small end over the 14-in. stud. The bronze, 
brushed end goes over the gear shaft to 
act as an outside bearing. Finally, add a 
%-in, setscrew to hold it securely on the 
Vz-in. stud. 

Run the saw' out to the end of the for- 
ward stroke. The face of the rear vise 
jaw should be set 14 in. ahead of the rear 
leg of the saw. The saw guide should be 
level when the blade is about % in. above 
the floor of the vise. And, when the saw 
guide is level, the rack should be parallel 
to it. 

When you have the rig checked out, use 



the measurements from your temporary 
setup to make the permanent one.

Set the gearbox on the rod, block it in its

it will shorten the saw stroke.

When tying flies, you can keep both

Anchoring loose hinges 

The small hinges on trinket and other 
miniature boxes are often fastened with 
tiny screws or nails which usually work

tapping the existing nails back in place. 
Other materials, such as varnish or lac- 
quer can be used, but be careful that the 
solvent (lacquer thinner for example) 
does not damage the finish around the 
hinges. The photo shows the shellac being 
applied with a wire dip. A brush could

BIKE RACERS use fairings on their 
motorcycles to reduce drag, or re-* 
sistance, thus increasing racing speed. 
Though the fairing shown is not de- 
signed for that function, it does give 
winter riding comfort equal to com- 
mercially available plastic rigs that 
sell for $100 or more. 

Besides the monetary saving, the 
fairing has two other good points: 
1, Being very flexible it will not cause 
injury in a spill; 2. It can be installed 
or removed quickly because you don’t 
have to take the bike apart. 

Cut from two 24x30-in. truck mud 
splashguards, the outfit shown cost 
me less than $5 to make, Besides the 
mudguards you will need several 34- 
in. pipe clamps and wingnuts for 
mounting the lower fairing to the 
crash bars. Since there are many 
styles of motorcycles, scribe all cut- 
outs on cardboard to suit your bike. 
When satisfied with the fit, custom cut 
the mudguards. 

Caption; Since cooling the engine 
is important, watch for overheating on 
short trial runs. If necessary, enlarge 
the air-cooling hole; you needn’t re- 
move the fairing. To purchase the 
mudguards, check the Yellow Pages 
under Truck Equipment and Parts.

OT MANY EXPERIENCES in 
woodworking compare with your 
first try at woodturning. You’ll find it 
sheer fascination to watch a block of wood 
take shape under the deft manipulation 
of a lathe chisel. 

A wood lathe is actually a simple, com- 
paratively inexpensive power tool made 
up of four parts: bed, toolrest, head- 
stock and tailstock, You can spend several 
hundred dollars for a large, heavy-duty 
tool, but it's possible to buy a sur- 
prisingly serviceable lathe for the price 
of a steak dinner. American Machine & 
Tool Co*, Inc., Royersford, Pa. 19468, sells 
the 36-in. lathe shown at the top of this 
page for $14*95, less motor. It features a 
6-in. -swing, rigid square-tube bed, lever- 
action tailstock and a two-speed spindle 
which turns in bronze bearings. The price 
doesn’t include a faceplate, hut one can be 
ordered for S2.50. 

Any lathe you buy should be mounted 
on a rugged benchtop or stand with the 
bed shimmed level and solidly fastened 
down. Ideally, the spindle centerline 
should be at a level slightly below your 
elbow or about 41 in. high. Use a 1725 
rpm motor. If you haven’t got a spare mo-

tor salvaged from an old appliance, AMT 
offers a GE saw-duty model, priced at 
$18.80 if bought with the lathe. 

Before the stock to be turned can be 
mounted, the center points on the ends of 
the stock must be located exactly. If they 
are not accurate, vibration will result. 
Draw two diagonal lines from corner to 
corner, where they intersect is true center. 

Next, mark true center with an awl or 
nail (if working with hardwood, drill the 
center about Vs in. deep). Then, saw two 
diagonal cuts at what will be the head- 
stock end to provide a starting seat for 
the spur center. With a softface mallet, 
drive the spur into the saw cuts. Never 
drive the stock against the headsluck by 
hammering the other end. Hammering on 
the lathe can knock the headstock out of 
alignment and damage the bearings. 

Replace the spur center on the head- 
stock by threading it and the work, onto 
the spindle. If your lathe is the type with 
tapered slip-in centers, the spur center is 
removed from the work and replaced on 
the headstock. Then the work to be 
turned is pressed against the spurs so that 
they enter the grooves you cut previous- 
ly. Move the tailstock until the point of

the ram lever, or dead center, is about Vz 
in. from the work and securely tighten 
the tailstock to the lathe bed. Next, move 
the center against the work and then back 
it off so that the work turns freely. 

The last step before actual turning is to 
adjust the toolrest. It should always be Vs 
to Vk in. above the centers. Never set it 
below the center line of work being 
turned. The top edge of the rest should 
always be parallel with the workpiece and 
about Vs in. from the farthest projecting 
edge to insure clearance. 

Though you can treat yourself to a full 
assortment of turning chisels, you really 
need only a few. A 1%-in. wide skew, plus 
wide and narrow’ gouges, will handle most 
work you’ll want to do. 

They can be used to make slicing or 
scraping cuts. Experienced lathemen use 
the first method. By angling the chisel up- 
wards from the toolrest, its edge -bevel can 
ride the work and slice off thin shavings. 
The result is a smooth cut. It’s a skill that 
takes practice but you can acquire it. 

If you hold the chisel on the rest at a 
lower, near -horizontal angle, it will cut 
with a scraping action to tear, rather than 
shear, the wood fibers. This is an easier 
and safer way to use turning chisels but, 
since scraping dulls cutting edges, your 
tools will need frequent resharpening. 

The skew chisel is used for smoothing 
cylinders, cutting V- grooves, shaping 
beads and squaring shoulders. To rough 
square stock round and for rough-shap- 
ing, use a large gouge. To round out coves 
roll a small gouge on the toolrest; first cut 
one side of the cove, then the other.

The various other tools are scraping 
chisels. With a little testing, you will find 
out that when doing faceplate work a 
round-nose scraper makes a smoother cut 
than a gouge. The parting tool is used 
primarily for sizing cuts measured with 
calipers. To make a cleaner cutoff, use 
the skew’ rather than the parting tool. 

Work which cannot be turned between 
centers is turned on the faceplate. You 
simply screw-fasten the stock to the face- 
plate and mount the plate. If the job 
doesn't permit drilling screw holes in the 
stock, a piece of scrap stock is fastened to 
the faceplate and the stock is glued to this 
setup, To make separation easier, use pa- 
per between the stock and scrap. 

Generally, faceplate turning is by 
scraping action, usually with a round nose 
or mortise chisel. The tool is held with 
the bevel side down and the point of con- 
tact is kept horizontal on a line passing 
through the center of the workpiece. 
Woodturning tips you should know: 
When cutting work off completely in 
the lathe, always cut free at the end 
nearest the he ads took. Don’t throw out 
broken files. You can grind special tools — 
a spear point or wide square-nose chisel, 
perhaps — from them. 

When using any turning chisel, always 
cut with — never against — the grain of the 
wood. If you cut against the grain, the 
chisel is sure to dig in and tear out a gash. 

When turning work mounted betw’een 
centers, always cut “downhill ’; work from 
the larger diameter to the smaller. 

While spindle speed isn’t critical, mod- 
erately high speed generally gives cleaner

cuts. Make certain that lathework revved 
at high speed is securely fixed between 
centers and, avoid taking heavy cuts that 
will burn the chisel’s cutting edge. 

Though basic lathework is easy, plan- 
ning a successful turned project requires 
some thought. Improvised designs' — the 
kind you think up as you’re turning them 
—usually turn out looking amateurish. 

At the start, stick to traditional designs; 
use the same forms used in wood mold- 
ings as design elements. To help you vi- 
sualize the finished product, make a full- 
size half-section drawing of a proposed 
turning. Don't hesitate to copy— or try to 
improve— turned work you admire, 

Some woods are easier to turn than 
others, Pine, maple, walnut and well- 
seasoned fruitwoods turn beautifully, Ash 
and hickory are the best choices for tool 
handles. Beech turns nicely but is quite 
brittle. Mahogany is preferable for glued - 
up turnings. Some oaks are attractive 
when turned, and some aren’t. The struc- 
tural softwoods, fir and hemlock, tend to 
splinter when turned and, if coarse 
grained, are difficult to sand smooth. 

When making small brass or aluminum 
turnings in a w r ood lathe, usually it is 
easier if you mount the work in a chuck 
screwed on the spindle nose. Carbide- 
tipped lathe chisels will turn soft metals, 
or you can grind a chisel shaped like a 
metal lathe bit from an old square file. 
Use a slow spindle speed for metallurn- 
ing. Another way to use a wood lathe for 
metalwork is to turn solid or split pat- 
terns and then have them cast in metal at 
a job-shop foundry. * * *

LIKE ALL SWIMMING POOL OWNERS,

lowered the water level to 1 ft. below the 
pool edge. Then, with a helper, I spread 
the black plastic over the pool. To prevent 
it from blowing away, the self-adhering 
Ty-downs were secured to the cover at 
about 15-ft. intervals around the perimeter 
of the plastic and each was then tied to 
the nearest fencepost. Finally, to keep the 
wind from lifting and tearing the pool 
cover, I laid several 2x4s around the edges. 

To keep the cover down in the pool, I 
added 4 in. of water. Happily, this layer 
also becomes our winter ice-skating rink.

BIG AIRLIFT TO NORTH SLOPE 

(Co nf irmed from jmg e 97) 

eration. An estimated 2000 workers were 
on the Slope last spring; soon there may 
be 5000, A mountain of supplies is neces- 
sary to maintain such an army, A drill rig 
itself may use 2500 gallons of fuel daily, 
and its supporting camp another 1000, de- 
pending on the cold. Machinery kept run- 
ning constantly soon breaks down and, if 
repairable, is returned to rear area shops. 

We fly an amazingly diverse collection 
of aircraft between Fairbanks and the 
Slope. With the historic DC-3 and C-46 
Commando at work again, it’s like old 
home week for veteran pilots. Few mod- 
em planes fitted the requirements of 
economy, short-field capabilities and haul- 
ing capacity that the Slope operation 
called for. I flew a C-4G last winter and 
noted wryly that it carried more, and from 
shorter strips, than any modern twin- 
engined turboprop. 

Below Dumbo and me on the aerial 
bridge, light planes ferry geologists and 
oilhands to remote sites, where a fleet of 
helicopters take over. Huge sky cranes 
also haul heavy loads across the tundra. 
Above us, four-engined DC -6s and DC-7s 
shuttle to the larger strips. 

But because reciprocating engines are 
under a tremendous handicap in Arctic 
conditions, tudbine- powered equipment is 
increasingly favored. DeHavilland Twin 
Otters serve for light hauling, but the 
really heavy cargo such as generators, 
pipe, and even trucks or vans, is carried 
by a growing fleet of Lockheed Hercules 
turboprops. In an initial test, a Herk 
proved its ability by hauling over 500,000 
pounds of cargo in a three-day, 15-flight 
session. Six months later a dozen of its 
sister craft were on the line at Fairbanks, 
making this the largest commercial fleet of 
these behemoths now at work. 

We manage from three to six round 
trips to the Slope daily with piston air- 
craft, switching off the engines only for 
short periods at Fairbanks, where heaters 
are available. (The faster Herks top this 
performance.) On the Slope itself, with 
the Arctic blasts adding incentive, we hold 
our turnaround time to 10 minutes by 
rolling loads of fuel drums or other pack- 
aged goods down a light portable ramp 
from the plane's door. Pilots and anyone 
else aboard automatically become cargo 
handlers. 

The Herks usually carry loads that can- 
not be handled so casually, but by con- 
tainerizing freight and using the larger 
strips where fork lifts and tractors are 
available, they can be turned around 
equally fast. 



In the public mind, an operation such as 
the Slope oil lift may be thought of as a 
gung-ho, hell-for-leather spree that is 
largely uncontrolled and partly suicidal. 
Nothing could be further from the truth. 
The pilots, many of them free-lancers, are 
all competent specialists, vitally interested 
in making this as safe an operation as 
possible. 

To illustrate just how routine flights in 
the airlift have become, let's go for a spin 
in Dumbo. We boot off the snow at FAI 
(Fairbanks) and plow straight north to 
the low-frequency beacons at Chandalar 
and Sagwon. Even along this 300-mile 
stretch we are on instrument flight plans. 
You understand why when you see the 
frequent flash of passing traffic at this rel- 
atively low altitude and the contrails at 
higher flight levels. At Sagwon the route 
fans out. 

When the oil lift first started, we were 
largely on our own after leaving Sagwon 
for the descent into the constant overcast. 
Communications with ground controllers 
usually faded completely. 

Now, as we descend for a landing at 
Kuparuk or Ugnu, the situation is en- 
tirely different. Last spring the FAA set 
up a control system to provide planes on 
instrument flight plans with at least mini- 
mum spacing. We now ask for clearance 
before changing altitude or deviating in 
any way from the flight plan filed in Fair- 
banks. 

The controller in Anchorage, without 
radar, must coordinate traffic over the 
Slope through a single RCAG (remote 
controlled air -ground) outlet at Pmdhoe 
Bay. With traffic so heavy, however, the 
single radio frequency is often over- 
whelmed. Aircraft are left holding in the 
fog, or are held on remote strips when un- 
able to obtain departure clearance. This, 
of course, will change when the FAA ac- 
quires other outlets and frequencies, as it 
plans to do. 

This time w r e get immediate clearance. 
As we break out of the low overcast and 
feel solid ice beneath Dumbo, we comfort 
ourselves with the thought that things on 
the Slope are pretty much the same as 
they are in Los Angeles or New York, 
with published intersections, standard in- 
strument departures, and a heavy reliance 
upon the sophisticated machinery of avia- 
tion. 

Flights such as the one described have 
demonstrated that Alaska’s great oil 
“rush” can be supported by the unusual 
aerial bridge. Only a small portion of the 
petroleum-bearing lands here have been 
plumbed, so the boom and the bridge will 
grow. I’m sure we'll be working Dumbo 
on the Slope for some time to come. * ★ *

SECRET BETTER THAN PATENT 

(Continued frnm page 112) 

mous empire on a formula known to just 
two men who periodically retire to a 
locked laboratory to mix up batches of the 
secret essence, called 7-X. The formula’s 
exact proportions defy successful analysis, 
even by such modem methods as chroma- 
tography and infrared spectrum analysis. 

Similar to such stringent safeguards are 
the steps taken by one of the leading per- 
fume manufacturers to keep the secret of 
its thousands of formulas, which have 
been worked out over a half-century. Af- 
ter each formula is created, it is typed on 
cards that are filed in a fireproof steel and 
concrete vault in the company headquar- 
ters. Moreover, in case of nuclear attack 
or natural disaster, duplicates of the for- 
mulas are stored in a vault buried under 
a mountain 100 miles from the headquar- 
ters building, 

.Another company that goes all out to 
safeguard vital secrets is EX du Pont de 
Nemours, which considers the process of 
making nylon confidential. The basic tech- 
nology is known. The key to making the 
fiber commercially lies in the area of 
shortcuts and improved ways of doing 
things. It is this kind of know-how that 
du Pont safeguards through precautions 
such as building its ow r n machinery for 
key steps in the manufacture of nylon. 
It also requires both its employees and 
outside vendors to sign agreements not to 
disclose "confidential’ ' information to oth- 
ers. 

Du Pont has taken similar precautions 
regarding another synthetic fiber, Qian a 
(pronounced kee-ah-nah), which com- 
bines the appearance of silk with drip-dry 
qualities. Developed over the past 20 years 
at a cost of $75 million (compared with 
$27 million for nylon), Qiana was referred 
to over the years simply as “fiber Y.” 

Chemists and scientists working on the 
project were forbidden to discuss it with 
outsiders or even other du Pont em- 
ployees. Combining a sense of precaution 
with a flair for publicity, du Pont intro- 
duced Qiana in 1%8 by having models 
wearing garments made from the fabric 
closely watched by armed guards to pre- 
vent anyone from snipping off a sample, 

A Midwest company that makes special 
alloys for the aircraft industry won't even 
permit mention of its name because its 
alloys are compounded by a secret pro- 
cess. 

The cost and trouble created by such 
precautions might lead one to wonder why 
any company would consider a padlock 
better than a patent. If a trade secret is so 
valuable, why not take advantage of the 



protection offered by the government 
when it grants a patent? 

In the first place, it takes several years 
io obtain a U-S, patent. The du Pont com- 
pany found out that it can take even long- 
er. In 1952, du Pont filed a patent applica- 
tion on a method for treating plastic film 
so that it can be printed on. Within three 
years, 11 other companies had filed ap- 
plications for similar patents. It wasn’t 
until 1966, following a round of examina- 
tions by the Patent Office and a court 
challenge, that du Pont finally received 
its patent. In the meantime, its competi- 
tors had been free to use the treatment 
process without paying any royalties. 

Even when a company receives a patent, 
its worries are not over. Though the pat- 
ent offers protection for 17 years, it is a 
public document, accessible to anyone who 
wants to see it. And anyone who wishes to 
may attempt to design around a patent,

departing just enough from the details of 
the original invention to beat a possible in- 
fringement suit. 

While it may seem that such subterfuge 
would be prevented by law, this is per- 
fectly legal. Indeed, a major reason pat- 
ents are made public is to encourage 
their widest possible use and to stimulate 
changes and improvements. 

The odds in patent cases favor defen- 
dants by a wide margin. One expert esti- 
mates that the side which sues for patent 
infringement wins only one time out of 
four. Even if a company wins a patent suit, 
the expense of the court battle may make 
its victory costly. A firm that won a patent 
infringement case involving electronic 
equipment used to pinpoint the location of 
ships exploring for offshore oil spent more 
than $100,000 in legal fees during the 
three -year litigation. Marvin Glass, a 
leading independent toy designer, says 
that he pays a patent attorney $75,000 a 
year just to file patent-infringement suits 
in his behalf. 

By contrast, a company that decides to 
try to keep its secret — and is successful— 
can hold onto its monopoly indefinitely. If 
the company docs have to go to court to 
protect its .secret, its chances of wanning 
are much better than if it were initiating 
a patent infringement suit According to 
one top New York lawyer, it’s ten times 
more difficult to defend against a charge of

stealing a trade secret than of infringing 
a patent. 

But the unpatented invention tends to 
invite outright industrial espionage. Gov- 
ernment and private security experts es- 
timate that U,S. industry annually loses 
at least S2 billion in pirated trade secrets, 
among them many unpatented pieces of 
hardware and ideas. Thus, when three 
highly paid engineers spent years devel- 
oping a water desalting process for an 
American company — then quit their jobs, 
went to a Middle Eastern country and set 
up their own firm — the U.S, company lost 
millions of dollars in research costs. 

In another instance, an industrial spy 
posed as a policeman investigating a sus- 
picious flashlight on the roof of a Mid- 
western plant late one night. When he 
left, he had in his pocket a sample of a 
special, unpaten tod sewing-machine spin- 
dle sought by one of his clients, who 
promptly copied the better design. 

More fortunate was the Time-O-Matic 
Co. whose best selling product, an auto- 
matic circuit breaker used in display signs, 
was not original enough to he patented 
but still was sufficiently novel in design 
to be a closely guarded secret. Knowing 
that lack of a patent made it possible for 
anyone to manufacture the unit, two 
trusted employees who had access to 
blueprints took an entire year to memo- 
rize every line on the drawings, then quit 
and set up their own company. 

In a court suit brought by Time-O- 
Matic, the judge enjoined the former em- 
ployees from manufacturing their circuit 
breaker, holding that even carrying away 
mental pictures was a violation of a con- 
fidence. When a padlock fails to prove 
superior to a patent, rulings like this en-

on the outside. Use weatherproof hot glue 
and well-set nails to install the corner 
strips. Then feather them out to a perfect 
corner and flush with the sides, using a 
block plane or belt sander. 

Assembling the motor into its housing 
takes a little time. The important point to 
remember is to be sure that the V-belt is 
taut and clears the motor mounting 
brackets. Chances are, with the motor 
unit assembled and running on your 
workbench, a few minor adjustments will 
be called for. 

For example, after running the motor 
about 15 minutes, you will probably have 
to back off the Allen setscrew holding the 
drive pulley and reposition the pulley. 
Also, depending upon how accurately the 
mounting brackets are bent, you might 
have to mortise the plywood side slightly 
to provide clearance for the motor and 
shaft. 

The sides of the three triangular boxes 
are of */ 4 -in. tempered hardboard, the 
tops and bottoms of %-in, exterior ply- 
wood. If you decide to substitute other 
materials, be sure you compensate for di- 
mensional variance and make certain that 
the material used is exterior grade. 

To make it easy to draw' the Disney 
characters, they are presented in PM’s 
exclusive Project- a -Plan slide format. 
Mounted in 35-mm slide frames, and 
moistened with vegetable oil. they can be 
projected directly onto the display. The 
outlines can then be traced with charcoal 
or Magic Marker. Next, the outlines are 
painted with black enamel and, when dry, 
the appropriate colors filled in. The paint,

of course, should be outside enamel and 
the entire display first primed with a 
paint sealer coal. 

If lettering the Christmas greeting on 
the blurb is beyond your skills, use stick- 
on letters— such as Contact— to i iish that 
part of the display. But, if you do, be sure 
to cover the letters with at least two coals 
of exterior varnish or they might peel off 
during the first snowfall. 

The drive and free wheels that give 
the display its revolving action are ac- 
tually pool bumpers. Experimenting with 
several materials proved that soft rubber 
gave the best friction for the required 
motion. If you are unable to obtain them

mate to the plywood and this is brushed 
on directly from the can, one coat on the 
wood and one coat on the laminate. Both 
coats are allowed to dry until when 
touched with a piece of brown paper, 
none lifts off before bonding. 

All the exposed edges are banded first 
with in. -wide strips, letting them over- 

hang each side li»i in. for filing flush with 
the ; ilywood surface. The strips are mi- 
tered at the corners, butted elsewhere. 
Once the two coated surfaces meet and 
are tapped with a hammer and block of 
wood to assure good contact, you can file 
the material immediately. 

After all edges are covered, then the 
flat surfaces are covered, letting the lami- 
nate overhang the edges *t« in. Again, 
final trimming is done with a fiat file, only 
here the filing is done at a slight angle to 
avoid defacing the edge banding. Strips of 
wood Vs in. thick are helpful in position- 
ing the laminate on the surfaces. These 
are placed on the dry-to-the-touch ad- 
hesive and the laminate is placed on top. 
After aligning the laminate, the strips 
are pulled out one by one as the two 
coated surfaces touch. Both sides of part 
(C) are covered. Notice how the same 
color laminate has been carried across 
the top of the table. This is optional, of 
course: you may want to handle it differ- 
ently and use just one color. * * *

Being an open-grain wood, the walnut 
does require filling. To do it, make a paste, 
mixed to about the consistency of heavy 
cream, using walnut filler and walnut oil 
stain. Rubbing with the grain, work the 
filler into the open pores of the wood. To 
remove the excess, wipe off with strokes 
across the grain so that the filler remains 
packed in the pores. Allow' the cabinet to 
dry for at least 24 hours. To finish, apply 
two or three coats of lacquer. When this 
is dry, apply a paste wax and buff it to a 
soft luster. * * *

NEW IN PHOTOGRAPHY 




UNUSUAL MOVIE EFFECTS are possible 
with the titling rig above. It consists of 
a slotted base attached to the camera, 
Titling cards are slipped into the slots 
at different distances to vary image size. 
Three dimensional self-adhesive letters 
can be arranged on a clear-plastic sheet 
and photographed against a background 
object or scene. You can also shoot live 
action through masks of various shapes. 
The Ultima titling base is £6.50 and a kit 
of fetters $4, Ehrenreich Photo-Optical 
ind., 623 Stewart Ave., Garden City, N.Y, 




LOOKING LIKE A TRIM 35-mm camera, 
Honeywell's soon-to-come Pentax 6X7 
features a new, larger film size — 2VS x 
2% in. — the so-called "ideal' 1 format. 
Like the regular 35-mm Pentax, the new 
model is a single- lens reflex and offers a 
wide choice of interchangeable lenses. 
You get 10 exposures from 120 film, 21 
from 220 film. Price not yet announced. 




TITLING SLIDES is easy with this device. You 
punch a small window in the cardboard mount un- 
der the picture and insert a plastic strip, Then you 
place the slide under a pantograph and write the 
title in your normal handwriting. The pantograph 
reduces your writing on the strip so it appears on 
the screen along with your slide, $24.95, Panto- 
graphic Co., 1310 S.£. 7th Ave., Portland, Ore. 




CARTRIDGE-LOADING PROJECTOR shows Super-8 
movies one after another. Six 50-foot reels of film, 
placed in plastic cartridges, are held in a tray. As 
each cartridge is shown, the Bolex projector auto- 
matically goes on to the next one while rewinding 
the previous one. Cartridges are self-threading and 
take any 50-foot Super-8 reels. Price is $229.50.

NEW IN PHOTOGRAPHY (Confirmed/ 



NEW COMPACT MOVIE CAMERAS from Kodak 
are smaller and handier than ever. Five Insta- 
matic Super-8 models range from $29.95 for 
the simplest, the M-22, to $99.50 for the 
M-3G electric zoom version at upper left. All 
models have foldaway pistol grips and accept 
an accessory floodlight for indoor use. With 
the M-30, you can zoom in and out electrically 
by merely pressing a rocker switch on top that 
actuates a tiny motor. There’s also a manual 
zoom control. Along with the new cameras, 
Kodak’s cartridge projectors announced last 
month simplify the whole process of shoot- 
ing home movies. You pop a cartridge into 
the camera, expose it, then send it off for 
developing, When the film comes back, you 
slip it into another cartridge (lower photo at 
right above) and insert it in the projector for 
automatic threading and rewinding without 
touching the film at all. For more on Kodak's 
new projectors, see October PM, page 159, 



AUTOMATIC FOCUSING has 

been added on three new 
Bell & Howell stilt cameras. 
The clever system is called 
Focus-Mafic. By aiming 
the camera at your sub- 
ject' S feet, you establish 
an ang'e that, through tri- 
angulation, indicates the 
!en$-to-subject distance. A 
pendulum measures angle, 
giving correct focusing dis- 
tance, System is available 
on two instant-load cam- 
eras and one 35-mm model. 
Prices a re $57 .50 to $87 .50.

using a cove bit chucked in your router as 
shown. Be sure you cut a right and left 
section. The same shape molding extends 
to the back ends of the pediment sides. 

The scrolled side ornaments are made 
next and attached as shown in the photos. 
The fluted columns can be set in brass 
capitals or you can turn your own in a 
lathe. Since the large cove moldings are 
made on the table saw, they require a lot 
of sanding to remove the saw marks. To 
smooth them, make a block having a con- 
vex face of the same radius as the cove 
and glue sandpaper to the face. 

To make the miter cuts, tilt the saw 
blade to 30' and set the miter gauge to 
54^i*. Run the cuts with the material 
right side up and flat on the table. Use a 
sharp, 6 -in. combination blade and move 
the stock slowly and uniformly through 
each pass. To finish, make the rabbet cut 
as indicated. 

After mitering, the coved pieces are at- 
tached to the waist with No. 0, %-in. flat- 
head brass screws driven in the rabbet at 
top edge of the molding. The beading that 
follows covers the screwheads. (On the 
clock shown, the heads were so nearly 
invisible on the light wood that beading 
was omitted.) 

The back panels are ] «-in. birch ply- 
wood cut in. narrower than the overall 
width of the base, waist and hood. When 
these are placed, allow V 4 in, at each edge 
and fasten with equally spaced No. I, 
■la -in. flathead screws. Finally, screw the 
retaining strip between the waist and the 
hood back panels. 

You can use your preferred method of 
finishing, T stuck to a standard maple

oped by the Texas Transportation Insti- 
tute at Texas A & M University. 

Crash barriers made of large aluminum 
tubes, called “Tor-shoks,” have been in- 
stalled on the Kansas Turnpike. When a 
car hits the barrier, the tubes telescope 
inside larger tubes behind them. The 
inner tubes are fitted with several steel - 
wire rings. The force of a collision makes 
the rings turn inside out and rotate — like 
a tight rubber band on a finger. The fric- 
tion dissipates the force of the impact — 
quickly, powerfully and gently. * * *

Sounds ridiculous, doesn’t it? 

Rut what if everybody in this 
country were to throw their 
hands up in despair and say they 
don’t give a hoot 

Indeed, there would be no 
tomorrow. 

Rut fortunately, Americans 
have a way of solving their 
problems. 

And that’s just what’s going 
to happen in these troubled times. 
Simply because it’s always been 
an American tradition. 

Now, how can you, as one little 
ole citizen in this big, wide 
country of ours, be of any 
help? 

Well, take a minute and 
think about a U.S, Sav- 
ings Bond. 

That’s right, a U.S. 

Savings Bond. 



No, it isn’t an immediate 
remedy for all our ills. But it helps. 

If everybody were to buy 
just one *25.0 ) Savings Bond 
(cost *18.75), your country would 
be stronger economically to 
wipe out some of those scars 
we’ve been sporting. 

Of course, everybody would 
he helping themselves, too. If you 
w ere to sign up on a Bond purchase 
plan where you work or hank, 
you’d have quite a nice nest egg 
for yourself one of these days. 

You’d have a lot more dollars in 
the kitty for things like college 
educations, that new home, or 
a secure retirement 

So think about a U.S. 
Savings Bond today. 

And then go out and 
buy one. 

Tomorrow.

HOUSE FOR $7500 

[Continued^ fro m page 13 JJ 

a short-term construction loan, money 
that's actually used until the home is 
completed; second, long-term mortgage 
money to bo repaid in monthly install- 
ments over 10 to 25 years. 

A qualified person can usually find con- 
struction money. Usually it is set up in a 
lump sum of, say, $10,000. The money will 
be released to the builder in five pay- 
ments: 

• 20 percent when the slab or basement is 
completed; 

• 20 percent when the house is closed in 
and the roof shingled; 

• 20 percent when the rough plumbing, 
heating and wires are installed; 

• 20 percent when the house is completed, 
and 

• 20 percent 30 days after completion. 

The latter allows time for mechanics' 
liens to be filed, Some lending institutions 
make these construction loans but ask 
that you obtain the mortgage elsewhere. 

To get an idea of actual cost of the $7500 
house, assuming a 25-year mortgage at 8 
percent interest, I've come up with the 
following total cost figures: 

• Owner built: $17,103.42; 

• Built with limited owner participation: 
$22,804.57; 

• Contractor built: $50,171.42. 

These figures are based on an appraisal 
I had made which put the value of the 
house at $22,000. 

These costs are for the same house, only 
the mortgages and the way of construction 
vary. They point up how important it is 
for you to build your home yourself, * * *

have to drain it. It will perform properly 
over a wide spectrum of temperature from 
below 0 to 10<T F, 

The designation W ( for Winter} after 
an SAE number means that the oil is 
suitable for low- tempera lure use. Note 
that an oil can may be marked both SAE 
20W and SAE 20, This means that the oil 
can be used whether the car manufacturer 
recommends the use of an SAE 20W oil 
or an SAE 20 oil. Because of refining 
methods, the oil is a dual-graded prod- 
uct which meets the requirements of 

both cold and warmer- weather operations. 

Your car’s owners manual has the last 
word on the viscosity of oil to use in your 
engine. * * ★

WINTERIZE YOUR CAMPER 




every time a brief sunny period comes 
along. 

Now, observe the following tips for spe- 
cific types of recreational vehicles: 

• Travel trailers. Spray a light oil onto 
the spring leaves. Lube zere fittings on 
spring-shackles, Pull a plastic bag over 
the front coupler handle and tie it down 

keeps coupler from rusting). Clean and 
repack wheel bearings on the chassis, 

• Pickup camper coaches. If the coach 
will not be used during winter months, 
remove it from the truck with loader 
jacks, ( You can rent loader jacks from 
many equipment yards or local coach 
dealers.) Loosen hold-down bolts or 
turnbuckles. Set coach down on wood 
blocks, never directly on ground. While 
the coach is off the truck, inspect its ex- 
posed underbelly for signs of splitting or 
swelling. Coat exposed areas with heavy 
mastic or weather-sealing paint recom- 
mended by local coach dealers. (Some 
sealers become sticky in hot weather.) 

• Motor homes. All self-propelled recre- 

ation vehicles should be given a complete 
chassis -lube before storage. Engine 

maintenance should include oil change, 
oil-filter change, air-filter cleaning or re- 
placing, and so on. Any service performed 
on your family car should also bo per- 
formed on the motor home or van camper. 
Follow the same advice on tires: block up, 
deflate. If vehicle might be used occa- 
sionally during the winter, do not deflate 
tires, but rotate them at least once or 
twice each month to avoid flat-spotting. 

• Tent- trailers. Clean fabric tops thor- 
oughly before storage, Do not fold down a 
wet top. Dry it out first. Remove stains 
from fabric sidewalls or lops immediately. 
Keep the unit locked. 

Despite all these precautions it‘s a mis- 
take to ignore the recreation vehicle dur- 
ing the winter. At least once a week, walk 
around it and make a quick visual inspec- 
tion. After every storm, enter the coach 
and look for signs of leakage or puncture- 
damage to roof. Don't let anyone lean ob- 
jects such as bicycles, chairs or garden 
tools against the coach during the winter. 
In time, such treatment will dimple or 
dent the aluminum. 

Using these winter-storage tips will 
save you time, money and trouble when 
you hit the road in the spring. * * *

NEW IN ELECTRONICS 




PORTABLE PLASTIC SPEAKER is only 1 Vz in. 
thick, yet has a frequency range of 40 to 20,- 
000 cycles. It consists of a thin polystyrene 
panel suspended on resilient mounts inside a 
frame of similar material. The panel moves in 
and out like a conventional speaker cone, driv- 
en by a coil inside a magnet. The difference is 
that the plastic is very light and rigid, giving 



the effect of a large cone without the tenden- 
cy of a large cone to flex and buckle, causing 
distortion. Weighing less than four pounds, 
the flat speaker can be carried anywhere or 
mounted on a wall. It's weatherproof for out- 
door use. works underwater. Several models 
are available from $7.95 to $19.95. Mag*

MIDGET HI-FI AMPLIFIER costs only $19.95 
in kit form, is ideal for adding a second, inex- 
pensive sound system in a den, bedroom or 
playroom. The 4-watt, 5-transistor single-chan- 
nel amplifier accepts any monaural source-- 
ceramic phono cartridge, tape recorder or 
monaural tuner. The Heath kit AA-18 is less 
than 8 in. long, can he assembled in a few 
hours. There's even a convenient front-panel 
phone jack. Heath Co., Benton Harbor, Mich. 




TWIN MICROPHONE KIT includes a built-in 
preamplifier-equalizer, connecting cables, 
floor-stand adapters and other accessories all 
in a handy carrying case. The mikes are 200- 
ohm Jow-impedance types that, with the pre- 
amp, can be equalized for tape and auxiliary 
amplifier inputs. The preamp has separate low 
and high-gain controls and a switch for stereo 
or monaural use. Price for Pro-200 is $100.

M OTO R-DR I V EN TONE ARM moves across a

tangent to the grooves. This duplicates the 
Straight-line motion of the original cutting 
head and eliminates the tracking error 
caused by pivoted tone arms that swing 
across the record in an arc. The cartridge is 
mounted in a chain-driven carriage that's 



pulled along a track by a tiny battery-pow- 
ered motor. As the stylus rides inward on the 
record grooves, contacts close, causing the 
carriage to move along with it at exactly the 
same speed, The action is so delicate the sty- 
lus tracks perfectly with as little as half a 
gram of force. The SL-8 arm is $149.50.

stator is a ring-shaped rotor magnet attached to the 
turntable. The turntable thus spins at the exact speed 
of the motor with no complicated drive train to cause 
variations. Rumble, wow and flutter are virtually elim- 
inated, providing distortion -free listening. Developed 
by Panasonic, the player is expected to go on sate

Y OU‘D FIGURE that a powerful, solid- 
slate stereo receiver would have to be 
just about the toughest kitbuilding job 
going. Surprisingly, it isn’t at all. Modern 
advances in kit design make even such 
complex equipment a breeze to build. 

Take Scott's new LR-88 receiver — a 
Cadillac of hi-fi kits. This gleaming, ver- 
satile '00- watt beauty not only provides 
AM, FM and FM stereo reception, but it 
also serves as a basic control amplifier for

PRESORTED PARTS ccme packaged in the* e three 
crush proof plastic tmys, Two slope-front onei in 
the foreground hold pieces In pockets numbered to 
correspond to wiring steps in the assembly manual 



SCOTT’S NEW STEREO KIT 

(Continued from jxtge 2M) 

other components, such as a turntable and 
tape recorder. It doesn't quite put itself 
together, but everything has been done to 
make its assembly smooth and painless, 

The parts come packed in plastic trays, 
neatly sorted in little bins. Each bin is 
numbered to match a particular assembly 
step and contains only the parts used in 
that step. There's no hunting for a tiny 
piece among hundreds of others jumbled 
together. Wires are cut to length and also 
grouped according to the steps in which 
they* re used. The pictorial diagrams are 
in full color — unusual for a kit manual— 
and match the color of the wires. 

The biggest timesaver is the use of pre- 
wired subassemblies. Most of the small 
parts like resistors and diodes come al- 
ready soldered on printed-circuit boards. 
The tuner front end is also prewired and 
factory-aligned. All you do is mount these 
subassemblies in place and interconnect 



them, A system of solderless connectors 
new to hi-fi kits — simplifies wiring in the 
final stages when things begin to get tight. 
The wires are fitted with tiny metal col- 
lars. You merely push them onto posts 

and they snap in place. 

As you come to that final, nervous mo- 
ment when you're ready to fire up the 
completed set for the first time, you don t 
have to worry that a minor miswire may 
cause your handiwork to go up in smoke. 
Scott's engineers have come up with a 
neat trick here. You plug an ordinary 
light bulb into the back and a special 
test switch puts the bulb in series with 
the receiver s power circuits. The bulb 
permits the set to function, but absorbs 
enough power so there’s no danger of 
blowing delicate components. 

In use, the smartly styled black-and- 
brass receiver also offers some thoughtful 
extra conveniences. There are dual mi- 
crophone jacks right on the front panel to 
simplify stereo recording, along with a 
stereo headphone jack. In addition to six 
rotary controls, a seven-section pushbut- 
ton switch handles such functions as 
speaker selection, FM muting and tape 
monitoring. Two panel meters indicate 
signal strength and provide precise zero- 
center tuning. A built-in testing system 
lets you use these same meters to run on- 
the-spot checks on the set's circuits with- 
out special laboratory test instruments. 

The 100-watt solid-state receiver pro- 
vides 50 watts of power on one channel in 
monaural operation and 40 watts on each 
channel for stereo. Frequency response is 
15 to 25.000 cycles. Assembly time was 
found to be about 60 hours, spread over 
several weekends. Price for the LR-88 is 
$339.95. While the same set is not available 
in assembled form, it’s estimated to be 
comparable in value to finished receivers 
selling for $400 to $500. Maker is H. H.

PULl-APART CHASSIS makes it eosy to reach oil 
purls, Most wiring h done on three main subsec- 
tions— from panel* rear panel and center divider— 
then these ore joined for making interconnections 




CLEVER LIGHT-BULB TRICK lets you turn on power 
ta make final wiring checks without danger of dam- 
aging delicate transistors, A switch puts bulb in 
series with circuit to absorb part of power safely 

POPULAR MECHANICS 




TOM McCAHILL SAYS: 



There s no mystery to 
making money if you 
can repair these things ‘ 



The greatest detectives in history would be hard 
pressed to track down somebody to fix n hum 
toaster or dishwasher these days. It’s funny; you 
have no trouble finding any number of &o-enlled 
experts who'll fix a leaky pipe or a home run 
through the picture window. But electrical appli- 
ance repairmen are still as scarce as hippies in 
bathtubs* 

If you're lucky enough to get a repairman to come 
from across town, lie'll eventually have your bum 
dishwasher humming again like bees at a picnic. 
He II also present yon with an oversized hill. 
That's where the picnic ends. 

If you’re in the market for more money you don't 
need to be a super-sleuth to find it. Look for clues 
in your own hacienda. If you're typical, you own 
a couple dozen appliances* counting your wife's 
hair dryer, power tools and usual plug-toi like air 
conditioners, mastery refrigerators, freezers fry 
pans, and on and on* A lot of men like yourself 
have built rewarding full time businesses after 
starting part-time earning $3 and more an hour 
fixing broken appliances. Others have found full- 
time jobs as Service Technicians. And when you 
hit Social Security years, think how great it would 
be to pick up a little extra cadi doing as much 
Appliance Repair as you cared to do. 

The Appliance Division of the National Radio In- 
stitute in Washington. D.C-, has a great low-cost* 
home-study course covering every type of Appli- 
ance repair in detail — from toasters and irons to 
air conditioners, refrigeration equipment and one- 
lung gas engines. There’s a ejection on farm and 
commercial appliances, too. if you're interested in 
a big payoff, for when major appliances go knpu! t 
they’re as useful as moose antlers on a mouse. 

To get technical know-how, NR1 starts yon with 
basic principles of electricity* You can gain c\* 





perience through actual practice, using an Appli- 
ance Tester included in the low cost of training, 
Jls the same kind of tester a professional would 
use while charging you six bucks an hour. With the 
tester and a few basic hand tools, yon can be re* 
pairing Appliances long before you finish the 
course. All you need for a shop is a corner of your 
basement or a card table left tip between poker 
games. 

You'll be amazed at how easy NR I has made this 
course. Lessons are bite-size and loaded with photos 
and drawings so you see how each appliance comes 
apart— and goes together again. Men who felt they 
were as handy as icemen in the Arctic have nothing 
but praise for this great training. 

The coupon below will get you a free NRI catalog 
with all tile facts. There on it's up to yon. No sales- 
man \s going to bother you. Do yourself a favor 
and mail the coupon today * . « tomorrow' morn*

Now Possible To 
Shrink Hemorrhoids 



And Promptly Stop Itching, 
Relieve Pain In Moat Caaea. 



Science has found a medication with 
the ability, in most cases — to stop 
burning itch, relieve pain and actually 
shrink hemorrhoids. 

In case after case doctors proved, 
while gently relieving pain and itch- 
ing, actual reduction (shrinkage) took 
place. 

The answer is Preparation ff®— 



there is no other formula like it for 
hemorrhoids. Preparation H also 
soothes inflamed, irritated tissues and 
helps prevent further infection. In 
ointment or suppository form.

New bumper absorbs shock 

Each of the above photos shows a car 
crashing into the rear of another at 30 mph. 
In the top picture, both cars have convention- 
al bumpers— and damage is extensive. In the 
lower photo, the cars are equipped with a 
new shock mount system developed by Men- 
asco Manufacturing Co., Burbank, Calif.; dam- 
age is minor. The system utilizes a compres- 
sible silicone compound to absorb the shock 
transmitted by pistons in the mount. 




Brainy wafer 

There are 64 complete electronic memory 
circuits on this chip of silicone {shown for 
size comparison on the nib of a pen). The 
circuits, which can transmit electronic signals 
in as little as 3-bil!ionth$ of a second, are 
used in the buffer memory of IBM’s newest 
computer, System/ 360 Model 195.

New Quick Battery Charger 

IMAGINE RECHARGING the batteries 
in a flashlight or portable radio in 15 min- 
utes. This startling feat is possible with an 
almost-instant battery charger developed 
by McCulloch, famous engine and chain- 
saw maker. Secret of the system is that 
the charging current is applied in short 
bursts, each followed by a pulse of re verse 
current, The reverse pulses stop the 
buildup of gas and heat that prevents fast 
charging with conventional chargers. 

The rapid charger, about the size of two 
cigaret packs (photo above), is expected 
to extend the usefulness of countless 
battery-powered devices like the array 
below. Already on the market is a 15- 
minute charger for Honeywell's Strobonar 
electronic flashguns (bottom photo). 
Looming big for the future is the possibil- 
ity of quickly rechargeable electric cars.

“Young man, 
foe an accountant!” 



from an article in Esquire Magazine 



O f all the professions, few now offer higher incomes 
than the profession of accounting. And the doors to 
newcomers are wide open. Actually there are more fine 
positions available in accounting today than there are 
trained people to fill them* 

,iJ The whole profession makes good money, pp says an 
article in Esquire Magazine. "According to a recent survey 
of 1700 chief executives of listed companies, more of them 
started in finance and accounting than in any other de- 
partment.” 

Do you know that, regardless of your present position 
or previous experience, you can become an accountant 
through spare-time home study? 

With the modern training plan offered by LaSalle Exten- 
sion University, a correspondence institution, yon study 
in privacy, during hours of your own choosing— without 



the loss of a single day's pay in your present job. 

Your lessons are mailed to you. LaSalle's distinguished 
faculty starts you right at the beginning, explains basic 
accounting principles and methods, gives you actual ac- 
counting problems with your lessons, then corrects and 
grades your work. You are thoroughly prepared for the 
accounting tasks you will be expected to handle in the 
business world. 

LaSalle has more than half a ccntury + s experience in 
home education. It has enrolled more than 1,000,000 stu- 
dents in that time. A LaSalle diploma is a credential re- 
spected by employers. 

If you would like a copy of an interesting illustrated 
booklet, 1,1 Opportunities in Accounting/* as well as a free 
sample lesson, send the attached card or write to LaSalle,

This accountant is the control center of his company's business. 
The fmaociaF performance of every departmeni depends on his

Result: the Evinrude Skeeter 



The snowmobile was a one-way ma- 
chine — till Evinrude came along. 

We gave it Reverse — to get it out of 
comers and keep you out of trouble. 
And a new torque-sensing drive that 
automatically matches the power to 
the need. And electric starting. 

We widened the track — to give it trail- 



blazing flotation and sure-footed sta- 
bility in soft snow. 

For power, we developed a smooth, 
twin-cylinder engine. An Evinrude en- 
gine, with Evin rude -built parts that can 
be serviced by any Evinrude dealer. 

While others were catching up — we 
went on from there. We made the 



steering easier. The quiet quieter, The 
ride more comfort able. The range 
greater. The performance livelier. And 
everything more reliable. 

Now you don't need to be uncomfort- 
able to have fun.
